    Nobody gives away $40 million without some benefit in return.

    Future naming rights on a campus building, perhaps? Great big tax write-off... most assuredly. Estate planning definitely fit into the calculations of this $40 million.

    So, yes Brand your contributions - in the way of being there and doing the little things as well as giving monetarily what you can - mean just as much, if not more, than big dollars and a legacy.

    A respectful hat-tip to you, sir, on this.

  • I agree with the notion on its face but I ask one question

    Would you rather have someone provide you $40,000,000 or have conversation and give you a cup of coffee?

    An interesting dilemma if a person is TRULY honest in their answer.
