Donor Spotlights

"We were both the first in our families to earn four-year degrees. We were fortunate to have a few special teachers who saw the potential in us, encouraged us, and challenged us along the way. They changed our lives. That support is critical, and the need is especially great in urban schools. That is why we established the scholarship in the College of Urban Education at Davenport University." – Nancy & Jim Ayres MBA ’00 | Nancy & Jim Ayres Endowed Scholarship for Urban Education

"Looking back at my college experience, I remember the professors that guided me and impacted my career path. If it wasn't for access to scholarships, I possibly would not have been able to focus on being a student. I wanted to help future Davenport University students. Combining an annual scholarship to help students today with a bequest through my estate to endow a scholarship for student support in the future made one of my personal goals possible."  – Mark Minder BBA '96, MBA '18
