George Mason has received a lot of attention lately due the large donations that the University has received from billionaire Charles Koch. It is reported, according to tax records, that the public school has so far received over $48 million since 2011. In 2014 alone, it received 16 million dollars – a third of its total donations received that year. The donations made go to the Mercatus Center and Institute for Humane Studies located at the school.
While Koch does donate to other universities and schools in America, none of them receives over $1 million yearly. The fact that one school receives such large donations has attracted a lot of attention from stakeholders in education. This concern stems from the fact that there is concern that large donations often come with conditions attached. This affects that integrity and independence of education.
Two GMU students, Colin Nackerman and Parsons Samantha, have even led efforts to demand an explanation of the true nature of the university with Charles Koch. They have made numerous attempts to meet President Angel Cabrera but to no avail. Cabrera seems fine with individuals who support education by donating time and money.
The Koch Foundation has reiterated that its donations have no conditions attached. Other large donors in the country include Phil Knight, Nike co-founder, who announced a scholarship program worth $400 million to Stanford University. It is however true that the private donations made to public schools helps to fill funding gaps.
Charles Koch was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1935 and has three other brothers. After high school, he attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to study engineering before joining his father’s company, then called Rock Island Oil and Refining Company.

Charles and his brother David inherited the company and grew it into one of the wealthiest petrochemicals conglomerate in the world. Charles renamed it Koch Industries in honor of his father.
