My old man said wealthy Cali couple (non-members) in 60s
when he was at BYU, visited BYU while on vacation. They loved the campus, wanted a BYU type school in California. Donated a HUGE amount to the church and asked that they put a campus in LA area. Never happened, funds were repositioned elsewhere. I guess there was never an official commitment either way. Not sure why this happens on the institutional level, guess they have their reasons. Don't know if it's changed at BYU, seems like NuSkin money is going towards scoreboards and not something else.
