Why I Give

Stephen and I give for many reasons. On the one hand, we give because we know the level of alumni contributions is a critical indicator that foundations and donors consider when evaluating a college, and COA’s stature now is just as important to our current professional lives as it was when we were students. On the other hand, we give because making a financial contribution is an easy way to show our gratitude for the formal and informal educations we both received at COA. And, being members of the Black Fly Society makes giving just as easy paying for our Netflix account!

In short, we give because we know that our degree, like any relationship, is grounded in history, but requires continued time and energy to thrive.
