Your generosity helps

Since becoming a School of Communications in Fall 2000, we have been blessed with friends and alumni who have provided gifts and pledges to help us meet student needs and strengthen the School.

Gifts support our operations and provide scholarships so that students can come to Elon, travel to professional conferences, use the latest technology and hear media professionals in class. We appreciate the support of the Hearst Foundation; Landmark Communications, publisher of the Greensboro News & Record; the Hurley family; the Burlington Times-News; the late Marjorie Hunter, an Elon graduate who covered the White House for the New York Times and left much of her estate to Elon; and numerous gifts and pledges from Communications Advisory Board members, faculty and staff, parents, foundations and publishers. In addition, we have benefited for more than a decade from the A.J. Fletcher endowed professorship in Communications.

We invite you to become a partner in building one of the nation's premier communications schools. An endowment provides the resources to hire the best faculty and staff, attract deserving students, maintain state-of-the-art technology and create curricular innovations that are the hallmark of an excellent program.
