Generous donors are helping us thrive in our race toward Drake’s Next Great Era

Donors Help Race to Next Great Era

Our Race Toward Drake’s Next Great Era To Our Donors who Make it Possible

It felt only right to recognize these transformative gifts with the delivery of a unique baton, created specifically for the campaign. Metal batons are presented to donors who give between $50,000 and $1 million, while donors who give $1 million and more receive a handblown glass baton.

As with any relay race, individuals are making an incredible impact to advance us toward our goal, but it is the power of this generous collective that will ensure we cross the finish line.

President Marty Martin and Griff II present a glass baton in spring of 2022 to Peggy Fisher, FA'70, and Former Chair of the Drake Board of Trustees, and her husband, Larry Stelter, thanking them for their leadership and their generosity.
