GIVING DAY 2019
We are beyond grateful for the outpouring of support we received on Giving Day #Brooks371. We received 745 gifts -- more than two gifts per current student on campus -- totaling $134,730. Of those donors, 142 were new/lapsed alumni donors, who exceeded our $10,000 match challenge with their collective $11,644!
We are so incredibly grateful to all who gave, many of whom shared some lovely sentiments. To read their comments, please click HERE.
The class of 1975, with 56 percent participation, once again won our participation challenge; however, the classes of 2018, 1985, 2013, 2006 and 2010 weren't far behind. The class of 1973 led the way in our total dollar challenge, donating $12,484. Their reward: We will place brass seat plaques honoring both of them in our new Center for the Arts theater.
Thank you to everyone who has participated; we are truly humbled by your support. We all won on #Brooks371!
