A sudden jolt to this hero asked for donor relations to rise up and recruit campus' mightiest heroes to combat and captivate donors. Assemble your team of campus superheroes to make an impact on your donors. Through our new and improved Impact Reports, we have embarked on relationship building with our internal stakeholders/Avengers to captivate our university world and show our donors the true impact their gifts have on our campus.
