Leonis Malburg Challenge to Benefit Annual Fund

While Woodbury University has been serving the Southern California region and nation for 127 years, its history as a non-profit institution is less than one third of that time. This year, Woodbury celebrates 40-years as a non-profit institution – an effort that was achieved under President Dora Kirby.  To commemorate this milestone, alumnus and Trustee Emeritus Leonis C. Malburg ’49 will generously match up to $1 of every unrestricted dollar given to the Woodbury’s Annual Fund between March 1, 2012 and June 30, 2012.

How does the Challenge work?
All new and increased gifts (gifts made prior to 2011, first-time donors, or donors who are raising the amount they gave in 2011) to Woodbury’s Annual Fund will be matched dollar for dollar.

All renewed gifts (only gifts made in 2011 but not yet in 2012) to Woodbury’s Annual Fund will be matched 50 cents for each dollar.

How are Challenge gifts recognized?
1) Donors will be credited for the match amount.  For example, if a donor gave $250 in 2011 and has not yet made a gift to Woodbury in 2012, they would generate a $125 match should they renew their gift of $250 before June 30, 2012. Therefore, they are credited as given $375.

2) Donors name’s will be featured on a plaque in an existing classroom that will be designated the Challenge Classroom.

3) Gifts of $1,000 or more also qualify donors to a seat in the Fletcher Jones Foundation Auditorium.
