Donor Recognition Program

 

All individuals and/or private entities who give an uncompensated cash donation of $1,000 or more in a calendar year to the foundation are eligible to be part of the donor recognition program. This includes people who give a contribution as a monthly recurring gift, a one-time gift, and gifts designated to a certain fund, such as a donor named scholarship. It does not include gifts given as a portion of an event attendance, a raffle program, an auction or other gift giving program that compensates the donor.

The Foundation retains the right to include donors in or excluded donors from the donor recognition program based on additional criteria, such as including a donor who gave a portion of the $1,000 minimum outside of the calendar year or excluding a donor who is no longer an existing entity.
