Dr. M. David Rudd Fund for the Benefit of U.S. Military Veterans

An anonymous donor who is a long-time supporter of the University of Memphis has created the Dr. M. David Rudd Fund for the Benefit of U.S. Military Veterans with an initial gift of $100,000. The gift was made in honor of Dr. Rudd's inauguration as the University's 12th president and his unwavering commitment to our country's veterans.

 

Gifts to the Dr. M. David Rudd Fund for the Benefit of U.S. Military Veterans will be used to support research devoted to veteran's studies, scholarships for veterans, the University of Memphis Veteran's Resource Center, or any other program or initiative that benefits U.S. military veterans. Everyone is invited to contribute to this important and meaningful fund for our veterans. Dr. Rudd will be provided a list of individuals and organizations who make a gift in his honor but not the amount of each gift.
