Catholic Schools - Not Just for Catholics (To Support) Any More

An Episcopalian, an Atheist, and a Jew Walk into a Catholic School. . . . - Philanthropy Roundtable:
Robert W. Wilson speaks with a calm, almost gentle, voice. With his wire rim glasses and closely cropped gray beard, Wilson could easily be mistaken for a senior professor at a small liberal arts college. But Wilson is not an academic. He is a legendarily successful Wall Street investor. Retired since 1986, the 83-year-old Wilson now devotes much of his time to philanthropy.

Among his many achievements, Wilson is the single largest benefactor of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York. Since 2007, he has donated over $30 million to inner-city Catholic education.

He is also an atheist.

Pretty interesting. RTWT. (The Corner)
