Naming Opportunities



Named Gifts

Numerous opportunities exist throughout the campus for perpetuating
your family name or that of someone you would like to honor.

Investments in Endowments

An endowed gift is one in which the principal of the original gift is never invaded; the gift, therefore, exists in perpetuity.

The interest generated each year is used for a specific purpose designated by the donor, as illustrated below. Endowments are fully funded within five years of the initial contribution.
