Indiana State University will benefit from the gifts of three businessmen from Saudi Arabia. The largest donation, $200,000, is from a goodwill ambassador to the United Nations.
Musaed Alzouyhra’s gift will support international education and community engagement initiatives. Businessman Abdullah Dokhan and Jehan Corp. President Hazim Allihyan have each given $10,000.
Alzouyhra said the funds will "be able to continue doing more for the community. After I heard about the work ISU students do in Texas and Kentucky I decided I wanted to offer my continued support."
The benefactors were part of a Saudi delegation the toured the Terre Haute campus. It included Saudi Aljazira Bank Executive President Ahmed Khoj and Vice President Rayan Zamzami.
