LEARN. LIVE. GIVE.
ERRY ALUMNI AND FRIENDS HAVE CONTINUED
OUR GREAT TRADITION OF GIVING over the past six months
with gifts and pledges exceeding $1.6 million. The bulk of that, $1 million, was designated for scholarships and work. In addition, gifts for the Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center have moved us very close to our $32.5 million goal, and numerous in-kind gifts have provided everything from livestock and land to vehicles and computers. One thing remains consistent – every gift, regardless of size, has a positive impact on students’ lives. Berry College is grateful for your dedication and kindness to our students, and we are pleased to report on the following gifts and new pledges of $10,000 or more that were made from Sept. 1, 2010, to March 15, 2011.
