Naming and Recognition

Chappell CampanileNaming Opportunities
Many gifts to the University enable donors to name scholarships or professorships. Donors of program endowments of $50,000 and more may also name a classroom or other appropriate space on campus.

All gifts to the University are important, and all are valued. Special giving societies recognize those donors whose giving reaches specific levels, or those who make certain types of gifts. Matching gifts from donors’ employers are included when determining levels of recognition.
