Giving to the College of Business


College of Business Donors

Many opportunities exist for giving to the College of Business and helping shape its future. These opportunities range from giving toward scholarships, professorships, or one of several endowments. A number of naming opportunities still exist within Barsema Hall ranging from $10,000 to $500,000. With these gifts, an individual or organization are recognized with a permanent plaque on the room they select as well as recognition on the College of Business Wall of Honor.

For more information please contact Anthony D'Andrea, Director of Development and Senior Gift & Estate Planning Officer at (815) 753-1736.
