Donor Recognition

We greatly appreciate the thousands of alumni, parents and other friends who chose to support the college with their philanthropic giving during the each fiscal year, and we are honored to recognize you as generous supporters in our Honor Roll of Donors. Your gifts are making an impact on our students and campus, and we share our annual Report from the President to detail your gifts at work. The generosity of our Call to Action Campaign donors continue to make a difference in the lives of our students and the campus community. Thank you for being such loyal Vikings!

2014-15 Recognition Societies

Membership in annual gift clubs is based on the total amount of gifts received from a donor during the college's fiscal year, July 1 - June 30.
