Honor Gifts

A gift made in honor of a person is a living testimonial that keeps on giving. It can be used as a way to recognize someone who has made an impact in your life or achieved a special milestone or for the person who has everything. Such a gift is appreciated by the honoree as well as the university and benefits students, faculty and University initiatives.

Memorial Gifts

A gift made in memory of a person is a special way to honor a respected colleague or a beloved friend or family member. Such a gift creates a legacy and memorializes the person by providing future generations the ability to continue the dream and pass it on.
