— A Chapel Hill family donated $100,000 to the North Carolina Psychoanalytic Foundation in memory of their 18-year-old daughter, who died suddenly in 1976 of a blood infection.

David and Connie Freeman established the Priscilla Freeman Endowment to help fund the foundation's children's mental health programming.

The Freemans said in a statement that they believe youth programs "are the best way to help children develop their full potential."

The $100,000 gift is the NCPF's second endowment and the largest single gift the foundation has ever received.
