contributing to the university.
Dr. Reiff reported on ways by
which individuals corporations
and foundations may make major
contributions to H-SU.
"The extension of a man's life
through a major contribution to
an institution is itself as signifi-
cant as the direct service of many
years" he said. "Wisely planned
such gifts to this university are
coined dreams aspirations and
faithful labor in the cause of
Christian education" he added.
H-SU is thoroughly committed
to certain basic principles with
respect to all gifts received. The
basic principles includes:
1. Trustees of the University
are the final authority as to whe-
ther a proposed gift can properly
be received and administered.
2. Intention of the donor must
be faithfully defined interpreted
and observed in the administra-
tion of a contribution insofar as
it is within the power of the uni-
versity to do so.
3. An accurate accounting with
regular reports to the trustees is
required at all times. Other ac-
countings may be made as the
donor may desire.
4. All trusts bequests grants
and gifts are to be treated as
"holy money" being a sacred
stewardship of the university.

ways of giving to the nfiversity
