The couple first met at the University of Virginia Law School when they were law students. He graduated in 1980 while Martha graduated the year after. The donation was announced during a university dinner on May 10. The $25 million will be paid to the school in increments until 2022, as stated by the Los Angeles Business Journal.

Their donation will be used to establish a Karsh Center for Law and Democracy. The center will use interdisciplinary programming to fund professor posts associated with the center and to further support an existing scholarship program.
