When St. Alban's Church in Tucson, Arizona, realized new revenue from lease fees for a cell tower on its campus, the church decided to ramp up its already ambitious outreach program, with the School of Theology as one of its beneficiaries.
Friendship animates gifts to Sewanee
In IMPACT, we share stories of people who give back to Sewanee and the benefits they convey on the institution. In talking with donors, there is often one overarching question, “Why give?” and an accompanying thought, “Why this gift in particular?” Over and over, while the answer to the second comes down to the specific interests, passions, and enthusiasms of the donor, the original motivation is almost always animated by friendship. As 2021 dawns at Sewanee, we thank readers of this newsletter for your continued friendship—your friendship with the University and the friendships you have for one another. May you be blessed by all your relationships and thrive during this new year.
