Honor & Memorial Giving

Honor & Memorial GivingMaking a gift to honor, or in memory of someone special is a wonderful and generous way to share that person's vision with the world. Depending on the nature of your gift, there are a variety of ways we can recognize your generosity.

You may feel hesitant to consider a gift that requires personal recognition. But allowing the SU Libraries to use your name or the name of a loved one can inspire philanthropy in others and will be a moving tribute to the person being named.

Please contact Ronald Thiele, Assistant Dean for Advancement, at or 315-560-9419 to learn more about the many ways to recognize your honoree.
