Thank You to our 2006 Donors
by Reba Leiding


JMU Libraries would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous donors for their support in 2006.


Through collaboration with the university’s Office of Development, JMU Libraries are starting to see substantial growth in donations received.  The libraries received over $35,700 during the 2006 calendar year through the generosity of approximately 90 donors.  This was a large jump over the previous year when our current fundraising initiative was beginning, and is due to efforts on a number of fronts.  In the area of major gifts, the libraries have a close working relationship with Development Officers in the university’s Development office, including Karen Guntharp, Director of Development for the Libraries and the College of Science and Mathematics.  In addition, the Library is one of the options for the Madison Fund, JMUs annual giving program, which donors can designate for their gift.


Most of our donors, nearly 80 percent, are JMU alumni, and seven of these alums are parents of JMU students as well.  Seven of our donors are current JMU employees and additional four are retired from JMU.


Below is the Honor Roll of Donors for 2006.  Many thanks to all our donors for your commitment to JMU Libraries.
