Naming Opportunities

In addition to the satisfaction that comes from changing the lives of students, donors can choose to name scholarships, programs, faculty positions, and spaces after themselves or loved ones. Naming gifts generally range from $10,000 to $10 million for spaces and buildings, and $50,000 and more for endowments that will honor a donor in perpetuity.
