New York University College of Dentistry Salutes Its Benefactors

Alumni and alumnae, faculty, and friends who have made special gifts to the College are honored by having their names put up "in lights" on a 7 1/2-foot-high by 12-foot-wide illuminated plaque located in the College's Arnold Schwartz Memorial Lobby. Entitled "Benefactors to the Year 2000," the plaque lists the names of individuals who have made gifts in a variety of ways, including gifts of cash, appreciated securities, bequests, and life income gifts, such as charitable trusts and annuities. Donors are recognized in the following categories: Golden Patrons (gifts of $1 million and more), Silver Patrons (gifts of $500,000 to $999,999), Patrons (gifts of $250,000 to $499,999), Sponsors (gifts of $100,000 to $249,999), and Supporters (gifts of $25,000 to $99,999).
