In 2008, Patti and Allan gave an $8 million gift to the University for which the Patti and Allan Herbert Wellness Center was named. Then, in 2019, the business school was renamed the University of Miami Patti and Allan Herbert Business School in recognition of their lifetime giving of more than $100 million to the U. Patti passed away on July 27, 2020. In lieu of flowers, the Herbert family has asked that donations be made to the Love Bridge, which leads to the Herbert Wellness Center, in Patti’s honor.
