The late Nancy Wiener, alumna of San José State University, received her Master's in Social Work from the School of Social Work. The advanced degree opened the doors to a 40-year career in social work, administration, and management and provided Nancy with opportunities to improve and support the lives of children and families throughout her life. Nancy believed the library's resources were central to building her successful career. Her work reflected her deep desire to help others and build a life that included strong partnerships with the people and community she served. She and her husband Kenneth supported many organizations throughout Silicon Valley, including the YES program of Silicon Valley Children's Fund, Opera San José and the Arts 2020 program. The endowment honors her career and supports the King Library's acquisition of print and digital materials in support of teaching, learning, and research in social work.
