Donor Recognition Reception Proves that "It Takes A Village"

On June 21, 2011, Bastyr University held its annual Donor Recognition Reception to honor the University's many supporters from the past year.

Appropriately themed "It Takes a Village," the event provided an opportunity to recognize the generosity and volunteerism of Bastyr's supporters and friends, who donated $760,000 to the University during the 2010-2011 academic year.

A special feature of this year's reception was a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the naming of "CollinsWoerman Hall" in the Student Village, named for the architectural firm that designed the new student residences and that also made a major gift.

"The new LEED platinum-certified Student Village has been an exciting project for CollinsWoerman, and we're very proud to make a major gift to name one of the residence halls," said Arlan Collins, principal and co-founder of CollinsWoerman. "We'd like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone at Bastyr University. We are honored to be a part of this community."

Among the more than 75 people in attendance were Bastyr University individual, corporate and foundation donors, as well as scholarship recipients and their families. Of the $760,000 donated in the past year, $175,000 went specifically toward scholarships.

If you are interested in attending next year's Donor Recognition Reception, consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Bastyr University today. Every gift makes a difference — whether for scholarships, research or to sponsor a special event. For more information, contact Sheryl Stiefel at (425) 602-3008 or sstiefel[at]bastyr[dot]edu.
