I think it’s important for alumni to recognize the superior caliber of education they received at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. An education of excellence comes with a cost, and if you want the best you have to pay for it. Some may ask why they need to give to the school after already having paid for their educations. The answer is that the school can’t run on tuition alone. Gifts and donations are very important sources of funding. There are many ways to give. I personally prefer gift annuities. They are a great way to plan a portion of your retirement. Any gift, no matter how small, is important. If you want the university to continue to stand as an example of educational excellence it needs your support to do so. I feel very good about giving back to the university that has given so much to me.
