Thank You to Our 2007 Donors
by Reba Leiding

2008 will be an exciting one for those of us involved with JMU Libraries and Educational Technologies as we open a new library facility on East Campus that will complement our ongoing library efforts in Carrier Library and the Music Library.  But we also wish to look back on 2007 and take this opportunity to thank our generous donors for their support in the past year.


JMU Libraries continues to see growth in the number of donors.  The libraries received about $30,000 during the 2007 calendar year through the generosity of approximately 120 donors.  Our growing donor base is due to our collaboration with the university’s Office of Development.  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.


The Honor Roll of Donors for 2007 is listed below.  Many thanks to all our donors for your commitment to JMU Libraries.
