This message is to update you on progress with the Name Your Moment campaign and donor recognition. For those who are not familiar with the Name Your Moment initiative, a brief history is summarized below. Should you have any questions about Name Your Moment, please feel free to contact either Mary Rattenbury (firstname.lastname@example.org; 1-4394) or me (email@example.com; 1-0448).
We are happy to announce that the first phase of the Name Your Moment donor recognition installation is now complete. The donor wall plaque was installed in the Rosenthal Atrium (inside Gate 9, above the Leep Varsity Shop) on March 8. This tribute to Name Your Moment donors will be enjoyed by thousands this coming weekend for the Women’s NCAA Basketball Regionals at Notre Dame.
The final phase of donor recognition is the installation of seat back plaques. This process is expected to advance in April and May. We will send a message to all of University Relations when a specific installation timeline is confirmed.
We will e-mail all fundraisers a list of benefactors who confirmed a wall plaque engraving and/or a wall plaque and seatback engraving.
Finally, to honor all of those who so generously supported this strategic initiative, a special “Name Your Moment” ribbon-cutting and dedication event is being planned for Fall 2012. Details will be circulated as plans are finalized.
History of the Project
From July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011, the Edward Frederick Sorin Society, Rockne Heritage Fund, and Athletics partnered to advance the “Name Your Moment” fundraising campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to raise funds for capital improvements, student-athlete program support, and general program support at the Joyce Center and at the new Purcell Pavilion on the center’s south dome. Depending on the amount of their gift, donors to the Name Your Moment campaign were to be recognized with a wall plaque engraving in the Rosenthal Atrium or both a wall plaque engraving in Rosenthal Atrium and a seat back plaque in the Pavilion.
The initiative was marketed to existing members of the Sorin Society, Rockne Heritage Fund Director’s Circle, Monogram Club, season ticket holders, and new donors. Below is a summary of the giving requirements:
- Existing donors to Sorin or Rockne would receive:
- A wall plaque engraving with every gift of $750+ above their previous year’s society membership gift.
- A wall plaque and seatback plaque for every gift of $1,500+ above their previous year’s society membership gift.
- Season ticket holders, Monogram Club members, and new donors would receive:
- A wall plaque and seatback plaque for every new gift of $1,500+ to the Sorin Society or Rockne Heritage Fund Director’s Circle.
