College funds, naming buildings keeps donor names alive

Cleveland Jewish NewsAmanda Pinney, assistant vice president of strategic giving, provided her expertise and insight for a story on development approaches when university buildings and funds carry a donor’s name. “Most higher education institutions have a threshold for a named and/or endowed scholarship, but this should never be a deterrent,” she said. “Depending on the level of scholarship support you wish to provide, for example full tuition, half tuition or a specific amount per year, scholarship support can be used to create either a permanent endowment or provide immediate use scholarship support.”
