Giving to Graded Events

Throughout the year, the Office of Institutional Advancement hosts informational, fundraising, and stewardship events. At these gatherings, we share our programmatic and construction plans, build community, and celebrate important milestones. 

The Centennial Campaign Executive Committee plays an instrumental role in the success of Graded’s fundraising initiatives and events, and we would like to thank our committee members for their generosity, time, and extraordinary dedication to the institution.
