This year's Honor Roll of Donors and Annual Report shares the current status of the ESU Foundation. The "bright spot" is that the economy is slowly creeping toward improvement - which increases the value of the Foundation's endowment.

When I read the names of all who have contributed during the fiscal year, I realize the commitment each of you has made to ESU. Your annual support and lifetime giving have made a difference between "good" and "excellent." Through your generosity you have made a significant impact on many lives and the future of education at the university.

Changes in higher education emphasize doing more with less, avoiding duplication of efforts through collaboration and embracing new directions. The ESU Foundation supports these changes and – with your help – is working toward building a stronger financial future and becoming a partner in change.

Thank you for your loyalty and generosity.

Yours for ESU,

Judith Heasley
