Thank You

Celebrating donors who made gifts from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018

Honor Roll of Donors


Thank you to the alumni, friends, foundations and organizations who made Jewell a philanthropic priority by making a gift in the 2018 fiscal year (July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018).

Enthusiastic donor participation has a profound effect on the College. It says you believe in William Jewell College and its ability to achieve great things. Donor gifts are essential to the College — they enrich every aspect of the campus environment and academic enterprise and bolster all areas. Donor investments support every student, faculty member and department on campus. Many thanks to the donors below whose collective generosity forms the core of our support.

“As a family of William Jewell graduates including both of us, our three daughters, one son-in-law and both his parents, we know and appreciate the value of a William Jewell education. Participating in the Jewell Fund has kept us connected to the College and allowed us to help students achieve their goals and enjoy the type of educational experience that we had. We are thankful for all the opportunities available for development in academic, leadership, religious, athletic and social areas of college life. We both still have friendships that were formed almost 50 years ago on the beautiful campus on the Hill at William Jewell.”

Dr. Robert Taylor, II, ’69, and Susan (Kinder) Taylor, '70
