The Long Family Foundation’s $1 Million Pledge to Transform UF’s Hamilton Center

The Long Family Foundation’s $1 Million Pledge to Transform UF’s Hamilton Center

The University of Florida’s Hamilton Center for Classical and Civic Education recently celebrated a significant milestone: a $1 million pledge from Kurt and Teresa Long, the largest donation in its history. This generous contribution will play a crucial role in enhancing the center’s offerings, including the addition of new faculty and majors, expanded student enrollment, and enriched opportunities for civil discourse.

The Long family’s dedication to the center’s mission—educating students in the core texts and great debates of Western civilization—demonstrates their unwavering support for the principles of free society and the American political order. Kurt Long, a UF alumnus, and a seasoned entrepreneur, alongside his family, has been pivotal in advancing the concept of “business as a force for good.”

About Kurt Long and the Long Family

Kurt Long, co-founder of BUNKR and an advocate for privacy as a fundamental human right, has an extensive background in software privacy. His ventures include the successful founding and subsequent sale of FairWarning. The Long Family Force for Good Foundation, led by the Longs, has been instrumental in philanthropic efforts, including providing 1.8 million meals during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Impact on Students

The Hamilton Center, established in 2022, aims to educate university students through core texts and discussions on Western civilization’s great ideas. The center offers academic seminars, including a two-week capstone seminar in the UK, providing students with transformative experiences and exposure to renowned scholars and historic-cultural sites.

In summary

The pledge from the Long family not only supports the center’s continued growth but also strengthens its vision of fostering truth, beauty, and civil discussion among young minds.
