Donor Wall Recognition

In addition to a named space in the building, gifts of $25,000 or more will be recognized on a donor wall situated in the Becky Blank Student Commons.

How to Give

Gifts can be made over a 5-year pledge period and fulfilled using a variety of assets, including cash, stock, crypto, and more. These are just a fraction of the opportunities for named spaces in Morgridge Hall. Additional opportunities include classrooms, student commons, labs, and more.
