Wilson gets $20K grant for science building

July 20, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Wilson College has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the Josiah W. and Bessie H. Kline Foundation of Harrisburg, Pa.

The grant will be used to help pay for renovations to Wilson's newly renovated science education building, the Harry R. Brooks Complex for Science, Mathematics and Technology.

The Kline Foundation Board of Directors approved the grant in May.

The $20,000, which is to be distributed later this year, will be matched by a challenge grant provided by philanthropists Marguerite and H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest. Marguerite Lenfest is a Wilson graduate.

The Kline Foundation was formed in 1952 by Josiah Kline, a real-estate developer, and wife Bessie exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes.
