To state it simply, the President's Associates at Ithaca College is a leadership giving community. We're comprised of grateful alumni, proud parents, and dear friends of the college. But stating things simply often doesn't tell the whole story, and that's one of the reasons why I'm so pleased to offer this welcome to you now.
Our community is nearly 800 strong, and we provide an amazing 90 percent of the college's annual support. Each one of us makes a tangible difference in the lives of Ithaca College's students, faculty, and staff. We are leaders among leaders, and as national chair of this distinguished group, I want to offer my deepest appreciation for your contributions as a member of our esteemed community.
I invite you now to take a look at the names listed in this section. These are members of your community, some of whom you'll recognize, others you may not. I hope by seeing all of us listed together, you will understand what a spectacular collective effort you are a part of, and the level of dedication and commitment Ithaca College inspires in so many individuals.
Explore this site more deeply, and you will find further evidence of your generosity. Stories of students whose lives have been touched by your gifts and faculty who have the resources necessary to provide a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience because of you.
As President Rochon has said,
As a member of the President's Associates, you do not have an arm's length relationship to our successes. When someone writes to thank me for a life-changing experience he or she is writing to thank you as well. You provide IC with the margin of difference between being good and being consistently excellent. I cannot thank you enough.
I couldn't agree more.
Once again, thank you for your investment in this institution, its students, and one another.
David Lebow '83, Trustee
National Chair, President's Associates
