nice. lord knows we need it!
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

Thank god the donors instructed the gifts to be endowed scholarships and a chair. If that 4.5M would have been unrestricted, Garibaldi would have bought 4.5 new logos.

Didn't we just get an email end of January stating:


WOW!

Detroit Mercy received $4,425,297 in charitable gifts this last calendar year.

Thank you for your gift in 2016!


Minus the 4.5M in gifts referenced, we're down $25K.

Fundraising is as impressive as our men's season. I thought they had some new pros working at this?

Mr. Vitale, that is because the gifts that have been announced for 2017, while the $4,425,297 clearly states 2016 that is why the emphasis on CALENDAR YEAR other than that the math would be impeccable if the inputs were correct! Next contestant is up for some University bashing?

Just glad to hear the money is coming in. Can't wait to see next year's amount with a 4.5M pop to start it off. God knows this little school needs it.
