Thanks to a generous gift from the estate of the late Beverly Koeppel, EE’38, alumni donations to the Hasselmann Alumni House can now be even more valuable. Missouri S&T Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader recently designated the $500,000 unrestricted bequest to be used as a challenge grant to attract additional contributions for the alumni house. The Koeppel Challenge will provide $1 of matching money for every $2 an alum gives to the Hasselmann Alumni House for gifts of $25,000 and above.
This means that donors interested in making gifts to the project may now claim naming opportunities for one-third less money. For example, a gift of $200,000, matched by $100,000 from the Koeppel estate, would fully fund the Hasselmann Alumni House courtyard.
When completed, the Koeppel Challenge will bring the alumni association $1.5 million closer to the goal of completing the Hasselmann Alumni House.
“Missouri S&T and the Miner Alumni Association are partners in ensuring that S&T remains vibrant and relevant well into the future, and the Hasselmann Alumni House will play a pivotal role in that future success,” says Schrader. “This matching fund represents not only the pride we have in our alumni and their legacy but also the importance placed on engaging our alumni in shaping S&T’s future.”
