An Iowa philanthropist has given $5 million to the Drake University women's basketball program in what the school said is the largest non-capital gift of its kind.

Drake announced the gift Monday from Suzie Glazer Burt, a member of the university's board of trustees. In a statement, Glazer Burt complimented coach Jennie Baranczyk and the basketball program, saying "when women empower women, there is no limit to the impact we can make in the lives of these incredible student-athletes."

On a personal note, Ellie Glazer Ziegler -- the sister of donor Susie Glazer Burt -- is a close, personal friend. Ellie and her husband Mike have given millions of dollars to all causes, from Duke men's basketball to the Fiesta Bowl Museum to the Boys and Girls Club.
