Donor Events

The Foundation hosts donor recognition events throughout the year.

Members of the President’s Club are invited to the Foundation Gala and other special events. Our leadership boards participate in the Annual Leadership Breakfast in June. Heritage Society members are invited to all special events and are listed in the Gala’s program. A spring appreciation event is held to thank our faculty and staff donors. 

In 2016, we launched the Red & Black Society, a recognition group for recent alumni/young donors.
