As a first year student at Villanova University, Elizabeth (“Liz”) Durham was eager to experience the values of Veritas, Unitas and Caritas that Villanova University is founded on. Wanting that authentic ‘Nova experience, Liz volunteered for Habitat for Humanity service break trips to Hickory, North Carolina and Fort Smith, Arkansas. Her experiences on these trips were so life affirming, that she continues to regard them as some of the most important involvements of her time at Villanova. Her parents, Michael and Marilyn, recognized the passion their daughter felt for these break trips and wanted to contribute a significant gift to ensure that other Villanovans would have the same opportunities in the years to come. The Durhams created a permanent endowed fund to provide financial support to students interested in participating but who may lack financial resources to do so.
