Alpert gives Brown Medical School $100M, new name
Chelsea native and philanthropist Warren Alpert has given Brown Medical School $100 million. The school changed its name to the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University in recognition of its largest gift, Brown announced today.
The money will help finance a new building, a scholarship program, biomedical research, faculty recruitment, two new endowed professorships, and an endowment to promote innovations in medical education.
Alpert is the owner of Warren Equities, which sells fuel and groceries from Xtra Mart service stations and convenience stores.
The Warren Alpert Foundation has made multimillion-dollar gifts to Harvard Medical School and Mt. Sinai Hospital. Xtra Mart employees have raised money for Boston Floating Hospital's fund to help families of children with cancer.
