Donor wall showcases community dedication to UNF



It only takes up about 46 square feet of space on a wall in the lobby of Alumni Hall. However, its symbolism is much larger because it illustrates how a community can help build a great university.


The Donor Honor Wall, which was formally unveiled at a campus ceremony in February, contains the names of 64 donors whose generosity has helped to change the lives of thousands of UNF students since the University opened in 1972.


“It is through the selfless sacrifice of our donors that we are able to set such a high standard for the education and experience we provide at UNF,” said Pierre N. Allaire, vice president for Institutional Advancement and executive director of the UNF Foundation. “They understand that the need is great and have made outstanding contributions to the overall quality of our institution.”


Donors were asked to place their tiles on wall during the ceremony, forming the building blocks on which the University has been constructed. Those building blocks have formed a solid foundation and include donor resources for student scholarships, funds to attract a quality faculty, monies to equip new buildings and to establish strategic academic programs to help graduates in the competitive global economy.


The following donors are members of the Founders Society who have achieved significant cumulative levels of giving throughout the last 39 years.
