Happy 203rd, Jonas!

Each year, we commemorate the birthday of Clark University founder Jonas G. Clark, born on February 1, 1815. Jonas was a champion of scholarship and a defender of free inquiry, values that continue to shape the University he envisioned when he made his original gift to establish Clark. With that history in mind, we’ve been celebrating the great man’s legacy for nearly a week, and are looking to reach 203 donors in honor of Jonas Clark’s 203rd birthday by Friday, February 2. Join the party today.
