I appreciate value, and I know how
to stretch a dollar. Plus it’s for a great
cause.” With those words, Deborah
Wehrman ’73 expressed why the Mabee
match was such a terrific deal. The
match allowed her to double her gift,
given in support of the Alpha Chi
Omega house soon to be built in the
new Sorority Circle.
Wehrman has been joined by
numerous alumni, parents, and friends
of WWU who are taking advantage
of the Mabee match. The match is an
outgrowth of the Mabee Million; the
$1 million challenge grant from the J.E.
and L.E. Mabee Foundation.
Knowing that we’re close to
breaking ground on Sorority Circle
is exciting, and I wanted to help
push us across the finish line,”
Wehrman said.
The Mabee Foundation is
challenging WWU supporters to raise
$900,000 by May 28, 2014, to receive
the $1 million grant. When the
challenge is met, the Imagine
Campaign will have reached its
successful conclusion.
The Mabee Million supports the
three Imagine Campaign priorities:
The Sorority Circle and
An endowment for the Center for
Ethics and Global Studies
The conversion of the former
president’s home into an Alumni
and Visitors' Center
For a minimum $5,000 investment,
the Mabee Foundation will match the
gift, giving the donor a $10,000 naming
opportunity. The gift can be pledged
over a five-year period.
Susan Russell ’48 invested in the
Alumni and Visitors Center; the
Mabee match influenced her decision.
Because of the Mabee match, the
naming opportunity in the Alumni and
Visitors Center was in line with the gift
amount I was considering,” she said.
Wehrman and Russell invite you to
join them by taking advantage of the
Mabee match and investing in the
future of William Woods students.
