Endowing Our Future Campaign Donors 2019 through 2024

Thank You, Alumni and Supporters!

Your name will be recognized in a list of donors. At the end of the year, your name will be placed in the club that recognizes your gift. The club list will be accumulative. That means if you give consistently, or annually, your name will be moved up to the next level of donor club. We will continue recognizing donors throughout the years until our 55th reunion in 2024. This gives us the opportunity to acknowledge every donation that you make throughout the years.
