The Northwestern Foundation is accepting nominations through Aug. 9 for the Donovan Reichenberger Fundraising Award, named for Donovan Reichenberger, former Northwestern faculty member and current Northwestern Foundation Investment Committee chair.
Northwestern Foundation Release
Nominations for the Donovan Reichenberger Fundraising Award are now being accepted through Aug. 9.
Established in 2010 by the Northwestern Foundation, the Donovan Reichenberger Fundraising Award recognizes the private fundraising efforts of Northwestern Oklahoma State University faculty and staff. Named for Reichenberger and his example of generosity and fundraising service, the award honors an individual who seeks to further the mission and vision of the university, allowing continued prosperity during a critical time of diminishing state support.
The public may submit nominations of Northwestern faculty or staff for the Donovan Reichenberger Fundraising Award to Skeeter Bird, Northwestern Foundation CEO, on or before the Aug. 9 deadline. For more information or to submit a nomination, contact Bird at 580-327-8599, firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at Northwestern Foundation Inc., 709 Oklahoma Blvd., Alva, OK 73717.
To be considered for the award, nominees must be full-time Northwestern employees, demonstrate excellent personal qualities and exemplify Northwestern values. Selection by the Northwestern Foundation Executive Committee will be based on the total funds raised by the nominee, both pledged and realized; the average age and income of the alumni base from which the nominee raised the funds; the nominee’s university position and level of responsibility; and the sources of private gifts secured for Northwestern.
The prestigious award’s selection criteria reflect Reichenberger’s dedication to the university. A former Northwestern faculty member and 1965 alumnus, Reichenberger is one of the university’s most generous benefactors. He has served as chair of the Northwestern Foundation Investment Committee since 1994 and as a trustee since 1993.
Dr. Aaron Mason, assistant professor of political science, was the first to receive the award when he was recognized in 2010 for helping secure a $100,000 endowed gift from the Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma, which created the NWOSU-Masonic Institute for Citizenship Studies.
