UConn Football Donor Unhappy, wants $3 million donation returned

January 25th, 2011

From ESPN.com:

A major donor of the University of Connecticut wants a $3 million gift to the football program returned and his name taken down off the team’s on-campus facility over his dissatisfaction with athletic director Jeff Hathaway, The Day of New London reports.

Robert G. Burton, the chairman and CEO of Greenwich-based Burton Capital Management, LLC, has given more than $7 million to the football program, including a $2.5 million “lead gift” for the Burton Family Football Complex and additional funds to equip the building. He informed Hathaway of his wishes in a letter dated Jan. 19, a copy of which was obtained by The Day, the newspaper reported.

How can you request a donation to be returned? Is there even any legal way to force its return?
