When members of an organization give and make their place of work a principal recipient of their philanthropy, it speaks volumes. This year it is my great pleasure to present the honor roll of campus donors. Your philanthropy makes the terrific things we do better. It makes the amazing education our students receive better. It is meaningful in a unique and personal way—because you see and feel the needs, the successes, the setbacks, the flaws, and the greatness…and you give. Thank you!
