Bridge Campaign – Naming Opportunities

By engaging in naming opportunities, you are contributing to Cedar Crest College’s $10 million bridge campaign for which more than $6 million was raised in its first year. The bridge campaign was launched in conjunction with the College’s new strategic plan in order to keep Cedar Crest standing strong for the next 150 years.

Your gift of $2,500 will purchase enable you to:

Be Moore
Purchase a Moore Hall cinder block to contribute to the residence hall with the best view on campus.

Get in the Game
Support the Cedar Crest Falcons in every game by purchasing a piece of all-weather turf.

Have a Seat
Purchase a chair in Alumnae Hall or the Tompkins College Center.

Larger Naming Opportunities exist, including but not limited to the following:

Endowed Chairs, Professorships and Fellowships
Naming opportunities for chairs are available throughout campus. Endowed chair designation is linked to a select faculty position filled by an outstanding scholar and teacher. Named professorships typically are held by faculty members whose accomplishments indicate potential for distinction in their field.

Endowed Scholarships
Scholarships give academically gifted students with financial need the opportunity to attend Cedar Crest College.  Donors seeking to strengthen scholarships may establish the endowed scholarship program. 

Endowed Academic and Major College Programs
Contributions to name an academic or other major college program must be to transform the program involved. The gift should be in the form of an endowment, with income from the endowment used to provide a margin of excellence for the program.

New and renovated facilities are imperative for the growth and success of the College; donors may help Cedar Crest College create an exceptional educational environment through facilities.

Lectureships and Lecture Series
Cedar Crest College encourages naming opportunities for distinguished lectureships, which give the Cedar Crest College community an opportunity to hear from top-level professionals in various fields of study. 

Athletic Department
Athletics provide students with an excellent opportunity to expand their leadership skills within a team environment.  Your gifts help to provide enhanced facilities for these exceptional athletes.
