Acknowledging the need to replace the sign located at
the west entrance of our beautiful campus, the Class of
2013 raised funds for a more aesthetically pleasing alter-
native. To underscore their philanthropy, university trustee
and 2012-2013 National Alumni Association Board Presi-
dent Bob Crowley pledged to match each student's gift
dollar for dollar.
The students began raising funds this past winter with
the sale of Bonnies iPhone cases. The campaign netted
more than $10,000 with more than 100 student donors.
The class plans to install a campus map as well as a
brick welcome sign similar to that found at the east en-
trance of campus.

Your Bonaventure Fund dollars support each generation of students at
St. Bonaventure. As we celebrate 125 years of giving, it is wonderful to be
able to highlight donors who offer support across the generations.

that current and future students benefit from the same high-quality educa-
tion they enjoyed.
