Tiffin couple gives $1M to university


FINDLAY — The University of Findlay on Friday announced a $1 million donation from a Tiffin couple.

Earl and Gladys Delong gave the gift to the university through a joint charitable gift annuity. Mr. Delong graduated in 1948 from what was then Findlay College.

In 1956, he co-founded Clinton Heights Golf Course near Tiffin, which he sold in 2003. Mrs. Delong was a nurse at Mercy Tiffin Hospital and Tiffin State Hospital.

The funds are undesignated at this time and can’t be used during their lifetimes, a UF spokesman said.
