Hot on the heels of the public launch of Light the Way: The Campaign for Catholic University, we presented Naming Rights for the Rest of Us, an opportunity for the everyman (and everywoman) with grand ambitions!
Many people may not be ready to make the kind of gift that would put their names on a building, plaza, study space, or even a library carrel. But with Naming Rights for the Rest of Us, everyone had the chance to bask in the glory of a named gift.
In celebration of Giving Tuesday 2019 (December 3, 2019), our community members made gifts to The Fund for Catholic University for the opportunity to add their names to the most famous — or infamous — campus places, aspects, or concepts. (From here on out, we'll refer to them, in general, as "places.")
- That parking ticket that appears even when you just ran inside to grab your mail? They could name it!
- That campus map that stands alone in a traffic island outside Crough? They could name it!
- That very public basketball court in CV where everyone saw you airball a three-pointer? They could name it!
These places needed some love and attention; our community members needed their names to be publicly lauded; and The Fund for Catholic University needed (and continues to need) our community's support to make upgrades and improvements to even the most "special" places on campus.
Below, we're shining a light on the places that were named — may they inspire us for eternity!
