Plantings a reminder of donor support

It’s easy to convince colleagues to donate to the University through its Annual Giving Program, says volunteer canvasser Gene Hirt of the finance department.

“I just remind them they can choose where the money goes,” he says. “If they like the arts, give to the arts. If they have a daughter studying engineering, they can direct their gift to support engineering.”

Faculty, staff and retiree donors have received invitations to an appreciation reception on June 6. The one-hour event will begin at 2 p.m. in the Student Courtyard between Dillon and Memorial halls—rain or shine.
