Naming Opportunities

Stevens has a long and proud tradition of naming facilities for significant gifts. In his estate, Edwin A. Stevens donated the funds which established Stevens in 1870, and his name has graced the Edwin A. Stevens Building since the Institute's founding.

Legendary philanthropist Andrew Carnegie followed suit in 1902 by making the first naming gift to the University, a donation that enabled construction of the Carnegie Laboratories, which are still in use today.

Subsequent named gifts to Stevens included the Kenneth A. Altorfer Academic Complex, the Lawrence T. Babbio, Jr. Center, the Wesley J. Howe Center, the Wesley J. Howe School for Technology Management, DeBaun Auditorium, the S.C. Williams Library, and the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science, among others.

In 2012, Stevens announced the largest gift in its history, a $10 million gift from the Gianforte Family Foundation to support construction of a new Academic Gateway Complex which will add much-needed, leading-edge classroom and laboratory space to campus.

Stevens has additional needs, as well, including faculty chairs, laboratories, and new student and academic facilities. To learn more about making a named gift, please contact Dawn Da Silva at [email protected] or (201) 216-5214.
