Aside from the obvious things, I'd use some money to be obnoxious. Like dangle $5 million in front of the Foundation to build a new building...but ONLY if it's name is "Building" (how confusing would THAT be?) or name it "Beard Sheer Hall"
I'd pay off the mortgages of each of the churches my wife and I grew up in, and the one we currently belong to. Create an endowment at A-P and Dowling so that the football coaches can be just full-time HS football coaches like down south. Provide a lead gift to Wartburg for an indoor football facility. Create a foundation with a board that the rest of our charitable donations have to go through so I can pin it on them if someone doesn't like a decision.
Then probably buy up several acres out in the country and build all my family a nice house, creating kind of a family compound of sorts. Then since I provided them a place to live they won't ever ask for money from me again. Would hire a kitchen staff for sure to have all our meals done for us, except for grilling...I won't ever give that up.
I would bowl in the SEZ, bring back baseball at ISU, make sure I had way more than enough to live on, and give a lot to charity. Probs buy a plane, bunch of houses, someone to keep it all straight for me.
