Why I Give:
“Why I Give? That’s easy, I give because I can see first-hand the impact it has in the eyes of students who receive internships or job offers or the growth I see in students year-over-year. Ultimately, for me, I can put a face to each dollar I give and that makes all the difference!”Pierre Morton

"Working with students at Franklin Pierce, on a daily basis, I have access to some amazing future leaders and change makers. I am awed by their thoughtfulness, intellect, creativity, their ideas, where they have been and their thoughts on where they want to go. Giving assures that these students get to where they are needing to go and increases the likelihood that they will end up where they want to go. And I want them to get there because they are going to make our world, whether that is locally, regionally, nationally, or around the world, a better place by what they are doing. I am happy to support them in their experience at Franklin Pierce University as a stepping stone on their journey.”Andrew Pollom
