Gert Boyle: From $100M secret donor to video humor
By Oregon Small Business Association

It was a mystery on who donated $100 million to OHSU this year. After some media pressure OHSU decided to make public their previously secret donor on their Facebook page and also a You Tube video (see below). The video depicts Oregon’s renowned Columbia Sportswear entrepreneur, Gert Boyle, with a jocular lemonade glass toast to kick cancer’s (bleep). OHSU is also emphasizing that people “give with Gert” and make their own donation. The donation was needed to help match NIKE’s Phil Knight’s matching gift of $500 million. Gert’s contribution helped close that gap to $428 million of the $500 million needed to be raised. Gert Boyle’s late sister, Hildegard Lamfrom, was a famed biologist and OHSU researcher.
