The couple gave the university $5 million. Of that total, $3.6 million will go toward the Michael and Cari Sacks Scholarship Fund for Chicago Public School students.

The scholarships will help eliminate loans in financial aid packages for academically talented students, meaning the students will be able to graduate without debt.

Sacks is CEO of one of the world's largest hedge fund investment firms. He received a joint law degree and MBA from Northwestern in 1988. He's been a university trustee since 2007.
