Donor Spotlights

"I feel that those of us that have been more fortunate in life have a responsibility to give back to our communities. When thinking of different ways I can give back, I can’t think of anything better than helping a young adult get an education that can help them achieve the American Dream. There is an old saying, ‘Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him forever.’ Helping others be successful is the best thing we can do to give back to our communities, and I can’t think of a more effective way to help others be successful.” – Michael Allie BS ‘75

“Decades ago, I read, ‘If not to each other’s burdens, what are we here for?’ I donate to organizations that address acute and immediate needs. If a person’s basic needs in life aren’t being met, it’s hard to focus on life goals – like an education. If my gift will help a student journey back home to their family or buy food to put on their table, then I’m happy to help. I am an investment professional and I consider the return on this relatively small amount to rank with the best investments I will ever make.” – Bruce Peinton ’73 AS Sales & Marketing Senior vice president of investments, Wells Fargo Securities
