Student Worker at Hermann HallAlumni and friends continued to make Berry students a priority during the recently completed 2011-12 fiscal year, with gifts totaling an amazing $13.7 million.

Highlights include the February announcement of the Donor Opportunity Fund, created by an anonymous friend of Berry to encourage support for students willing to work hard for their education through the Gate of Opportunity Scholarship Program. By providing a $1.25-for-$1 match, the fund makes it possible for donors or groups of donors to establish $225,000 scholarship endowments with gifts of just $100,000. The match also can be used for enhancing an existing endowed scholarship into Gate of Opportunity status. One-half of the fund’s seed money was received in 2011-12, and 23 new scholarships were stimulated (including three from reunion classes).

Also of the note is the successful alumni-driven campaign to name the science building for Dr. Lawrence E. McAllister, father of Berry’s physics program, as well as a record $2.4 million in annual gifts to Berry’s Firsthand Fund, which provides immediate support for work and scholarships. Look for more giving highlights in the fall issue of Berry magazine and the online Honor Roll of Donors. In the meantime, please accept our heartfelt thanks for all you do in support of Berry students.
