We Believe


  • Private gifts have the power to transform higher education.
  • Higher education transforms lives and communities.
  • The university determines priorities.
  • Donors determine where to direct their gifts.
  • The relationship with the donor is valued as much as the gift.
  • What we help donors achieve isn't measured in dollars and cents.
  • Every employee contributes to every gift.
  • Our goals are reached as a team. We respect our colleagues -- as individuals and as professionals.
  • We should be held accountable -- to each other, to our donors and to the university.
  • Philanthropy should be fulfilling, inspiring and fun.
  • Most of all we believe our integrity, not our endowment, is our greatest asset.
