The National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation (NADCF) awarded the LMU Center for Accounting Ethics, Governance, and the Public Interest a grant of $7,000 on Nov. 19, 2008, which supports the center’s current programs and events. The donation was presented by NADCF Chairman Robert P. Mallon to LMU President Robert B. Lawton, S.J.
"It is a great honor for the Center for Accounting Ethics, Governance, and the Public Interest to receive the grant,” said Professor Larry Kalbers, R. Chad Dreier Chair in Accounting Ethics and director of the center. “This money will enhance our ability to provide quality programs and events about ethics to our students and the Los Angeles business community.”
Each year, NADCF gives $7,000 to four accredited private / independent colleges or universities for the study of ethics. The money is part of a fund which honors the memory of John P. Winston, Sr. — an accomplished attorney dedicated to ethical practices and a man of deep religious conviction and devotion to his family. Since its inception in 1990, the fund has provided 66 grants worth $342,000.
