Founding NCSSM-Durham staff member Dr. H. Braughn Taylor and his husband arranged a $1 million bequest to the Foundation endowment to enable NCSSM to “continue to create an environment where students can thrive and pursue their intellectual interests,” a gift that “is going to be there forever,” generating income and “supporting the students.”

Hear from Braughn on what inspired him to make this incredible commitment here:


The Foundation is thrilled to receive this transformational gift on behalf of the school that will create opportunities for future generations of students and hopes that it will inspire other generous bequests as well as Ignite + Transform Campaign gifts and pledges.
