Catillaz Quoted in Forbes

Michael J. Catillaz, vice president for institutional advancement, was quoted in the Oct. 31 issue of Forbes magazine. The article “Top-Earning Dead Celebrities” focused on the naming of buildings, professorships, scholarships and programs as a staple tactic in the fundraising business. Some institutions expect as much as 50 percent, some as little as 25 percent.

“Fundraisers at the Colleges expect the naming donor to contribute 40 percent of the cost of a new building or renovation,” said Catillaz.
