Potential Gift Designations

You may designate your gift to support the program of your choosing. Gifts may be endowed or supported through current use funds for a period of time. Partial funding of these opportunities is also possible and gifts may be directed to specific needs within each area. If you have an idea for another way you’d like your gift to be used, please let us know.

Following are some possibilities for your consideration.
