Office of Development

The Office of Development is responsible for coordinating all fund raising efforts to benefit the University, including Annual Giving, Scholarship Donations, Band Campaign, Hill Hall Gala Major Gifts, and Planned Giving.

Annual Giving Program provides a vehicle for involving volunteers and for developing and fostering annual support from alumni and friends. It provides unrestricted gift income to help support alumni, athletic, and university functions. Donors can also restrict their annual gifts to support specific areas/programs of interest to them.

Major Gifts provide the University with a way to increase the size of its endowment, acquire additional equipment and resources, and increase student and faculty support through scholarships, endowed professorships, and chairs. Its purpose is to identify, cultivate and solicit major gifts. Planned Giving enables a donor to make a legacy gift through such methods as bequests, gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance, appreciated property and other means.

Planned Giving provides a vehicle through which many alumni and friends can be major benefactors of the University. For more information about these programs, please call or email the Office of Development.

Each gift will be acknowledged with a receipt for your records. There is a beneficial tax consequence you may find suitable to your specific need. Please remember to always seek the opinion of your professional tax advisor or legal counsel when making a financial decision.
