In 2014, Zucker signed a $4 million gift agreement with The Citadel designed to elevate the Zucker Family School of Education to national prominence through development of scholarly and practical tools for improving education and noteworthy direct assistance to area classroom teachers and school leaders. In naming the Zucker Family School of Education, The Citadel marked its first school named after a substantial donor.
