The mission of the Office of Stewardship is to sustain and nurture lifelong relationships with the university’s donors while providing accurate and timely information pertaining to the investment, use, and impact of their gifts. The office was established to cultivate, recognize, and acknowledge donors across the university. Donor-focused stewardship is accomplished through timely and appropriate gift acknowledgement, fund reporting, donor recognition, and stewardship activities. Through meaningful and consistent contacts with constituents, we build lifelong relationships with donors and instills trust that gifts and investments are supporting the success of the University.
