New ‘Giving Societies’ honor donors’ generosity
Newman University is blessed to receive many gifts each year from alumni, donors and friends of the university. As a sign of appreciation, the university recently announced several new “Giving Societies” and clubs, to recognize the generosity of benefactors who make gifts at various levels throughout the year.
“We are extremely grateful for the many gifts we receive that help support student scholarships, academic programs, physical plant and operations, and many other aspects of this university,” said Newman President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D. “We strive to be good stewards of these gifts, and want our donors to know that their generosity is greatly appreciated. We literally could not do all that we do at Newman without them.”
“The Giving Societies are a way for us to say thank you and to show our donors that we value every individual, couple, family, company or organization that contributes to our efforts here,” added Newman Vice President for University Advancement J.V. Johnston ’82. “You make everything possible.”
Membership in each society is based on the level of giving in a fiscal year, and includes a number of privileges ranging from appreciation dinners and complimentary invitations to university events, to commemorative gifts and recognition in the Annual Report.
