Giving and Naming Opportunities

Gifts at every level are welcome and are accepted in a variety of forms. You can designate your support for a particular project or make an unrestricted gift. You may also choose from a range of naming opportunities—options that will recognize your own generosity or honor someone you love through the naming of a campus facility or endowed fund.


To discuss giving opportunities matching your interests,
contact Kathleen M. Christy,
Vice President of Institutional Advancement 
by email at christyk@dyc.edu or by phone at 716.829.7801.
