The Schmidt Matching Challenge

I-House Alumni Eric and Wendy Schmidt have donated $1 million towards the Dining Commons Transformation Project and pledged an additional $1 million to serve as a matching challenge for alumni and friends. The I-House Schmidt Matching Challenge will match gifts of any size designated to any area of I-House. Donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1 million over the next two years.

The interactions and the friendships that occur in the dining hall lie at the heart of the I-House. In an effort to provide the best possible experience for residents and the community, I-House will embark on this estimated $7.75 million transformation project to improve customer service, interaction, efficiency, and access.
