A major donor to the University of Pennsylvania is withdrawing a nearly $100 million donation in protest over the college's handling of anti-Semitism on campus and the UPenn president's controversial testimony on the subject.
Ross Stevens, founder and CEO of Stone Ridge Asset Management, donated to Penn in 2017, a gift that included partnership units in the firm, now worth about $100 million, to help the university establish a center for financial innovation.
Stevens' attorneys sent a letter to the university indicating that the school had violated Stone Ridge's limited partnership agreement through its failure to follow anti-discrimination and anti-harassment rules.
