Step Up to Leadership
Step up to grow your support gradually over time and receive immediate recognition as a leadership donor today. In the past, membership in the Heritage Circle and beyond was limited to those individuals who made gifts of $1,000 or more to the Blue Fund. Through the STEP UP TO LEADERSHIP program, you can join the Heritage Circle now by making a gift at an established minimum during the first year and eventually increasing to the $1,000 or higher level over a four-year period.

Many leadership donors began supporting former students like Dr. Erinn Coe during their first-year. Upon hearing Erinn’s story in 2016, donors realized that their continued support would help make Erin’s dreams come true. Throughout, Dr. Coe has continued to share her story with us.
