Are there other opportunities to name space in the Greek Assembly Hall, outside of the Donor Wall?

Yes. There are naming opportunities for different spaces throughout the building, ranging from $10,000 to $2,500,000. For more information about the available spaces to name, please contact Jordyn Pruitt (information listed below).

If I don’t want my name listed but I want to support the initiatives, can I donate anonymously?

Each paver will have four lines, and each line can have up to 14 characters (including spaces).

Will I have the opportunity to see a proof of my paver before it is engraved?

Yes. Once you have purchased your paver, you will receive a proof via email within 30 days of your purchase. Once the individual who placed the order receives the proof, you will have one week to communicate any changes you would like to see before the paver is engraved. After this timeframe, pavers will be engraved, and edits will not be allowed.

What will my donation support?

All donations and proceeds from paver purchases will be directed to the NPHC Plaza Building Fund. While all expenses for Greek Assembly Hall have been covered, the NPHC Plaza is an additional expense that fundraising initiatives support. Once the NPHC Plaza has been built, all remaining funds will be transferred into the Greek Assembly Hall Endowed Support Fund for scholarships and programmatic support for NPHC and UGC organizations on campus.

Is my donation/purchase tax deductible?

Sort of. All donations are tax deductible; but, for the NPHC Plaza pavers, the cost to produce and engrave the paver will be deducted from the tax-deductible amount of your donation.

Can I wait and purchase a paver at a later date?

There are a limited number of pavers available, and once all have been sold out then the opportunity to purchase one will have passed. Additionally, at this time there are no plans to continue operating paver sales after Greek Assembly Hall opens in August 2023. However, the Donor Wall will continue to provide opportunities for donor recognition.
