HDS Voices

Ruth Purtilo
I give to Harvard Divinity School because it’s another opportunity to practice the kind of leadership HDS taught me. My gift becomes part of a goodness that is bigger than I am—where I can’t necessarily control the outcome, but can participate in the emergence of something far better than I could have imagined.
—Ruth B. Purtilo, MTS '75, PhD '79; HDS Leadership Council
