Gift Tributes

Gifts are often prompted by a desire to pay tribute to the memory of a loved one or to honor an influential person in one's life such as a favorite professor, pastor, or family member. A gift tribute is a helpful way to advance the University while honoring a treasured life. Gift tributes do not have a limit or minimum. We will be happy to assist you in honoring someone that you wish to recognize in this way.
