Donor Recognition Policy

All functions previously addressed by the Physical and Capital Planning unit have been incorporated into the Physical Facilities organization. In the coming weeks, this website will be decommissioned, and the information contained here will be integrated into the Energy and Construction website. The structure and appearance of the information will be adapted to fit within the existing Energy and Construction website and to reflect the updated organizational structure of the unit.


APPROVED FEBRUARY 19, 1992

Donations Less Than $1,000

A letter from the department of Physical Facilities will recognize donations of less than $1,000.  These donations will be directed toward a fund which can be specifically designated for landscape amenities, including trees, benches, planters, kiosks, bike racks, trash receptacles, etc.  No physical recognition (i.e., plaques) will be designated for these gifts.

Donations Greater Than $1,000 But Less Than $10,000

A letter from the department of Physical Facilities and the president of the university will recognize donations of $1,000 or more.  The gift will also be recognized at a centralized location.  These donations will be directed toward a designated Physical Facilities project.  These donations may be cumulative with other donations until the project is completely funded.  Cumulative donations will be recognized collectively if project exceeds $10,000.

Donations Greater Than $10,000

Donations of $10,000 or more will be recognized physically in a manner deemed appropriate by the University Architect (i.e., plaque in the vicinity of the project).  Cumulative gifts will be recognized collectively.
