Higmans Awarded for Outstanding Philanthropy

The Sierra Club and The Sierra Club Foundation recognized Jim and Sue Higman for their outstanding philanthropy at the National Advisory Council's Donor Appreciation Dinner on November 15 in San Francisco.

The Higmans created a generous endowment for the Club's William E. Colby Memorial Library, which holds one of the largest collections of environmental and mountaineering literature in the United States. Contributions for the Colby are matched dollar-for-dollar by the Higman Endowment.
