Impact Spotlight

Impact Stories

Alumni and friends support Stevens for many reasons. Some gifts come from grateful alumni who make provisions for Stevens in their estate plans. Others come from eager new alumni who make their first gift soon after graduating, and begin to make philanthropy an annual habit. Still more gifts come from generous corporate and foundation partners who believe Stevens is a sound investment. Whatever the reason, and no matter the amount, every gift has a story and an impact.
