27 Years of Giving

I have been giving to Kennesaw State University (and previously
 Southern Polytechnic State University) for over 27 consecutive years.  I have always believed in giving to the students and department/college through our Foundation accounts.  Student scholarships, student travel and support are all products of the monies received by the foundation.  I have served on scholarship committees and it is always a pleasure to be able to award different scholarships to deserving students.  I believe in giving where I can, and our foundation is a place where every dollar I give goes to the designated area I choose. This is a very important part of working at a university and a privilege.

Newest Faculty Donor

After I found out that there was a fund to help our own department, I wanted to participate.  If we all contribute, we all share the expenses, and we all benefit.  Great!
