Secret Millionaire Grace Groner Donates Her Fortune

Grace Groner, orphaned at 12, was taken in by family friends until she was adopted. Her adopted parents made an investment of paying her way through Lake Forest College, not knowing this investment would lead to a greater one many years later when Grace would repay her educators in a most extraordinary way.


 She took on a job as a secretary upon graduation.  She never married, or drove a car, and she lived her whole life in a small cottage. Unbeknownst to anyone, she used her savings to buy three $60 stock shares in 1935.

Lake Forest left a huge imprint on Grace’s heart, enough for her to give them back all she had in return.
