Tribute & memorial giving

Students studying on grass
A tribute gift is a wonderful way to recognize a friend, family member, colleague or inspirational professor. These donations are often made to celebrate a milestone such as graduation, retirement, special birthday or anniversary.
A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember a loved one’s legacy or to express your appreciation for someone special. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of students today, tomorrow and far into the future. 
When a gift is made in memory, in honor or in celebration of someone, a special letter is sent to the individual being honored or to whom you indicate should be notified of the gift.
