Friends Finances

Over the years, Friends of the International Center have solicited donations to help fund its conversation and host programs, the Excellence in Teaching Award , and the activities of the International Center. However, in the spring of 2007, the International Center received a most generous gift from the family of Kathryn W. and Shelby Cullom Davis ’30, which provides a permanent endowment to support the programs at the International Center, now called the Davis International Center, and those of Friends of Davis International Center.

For further information to learn more about the work of the Friends, please e-mail Hanna Hand or call her at (609) 258-1170.
