Naming Opportunities

Honor the past. Support the Present. Build the Future.

Your Gift Makes a Difference! Major support can be designated with a named studio or classroom space in the Lamar Dodd School of Art.

Help create a state-of-the-art learning environment.

Your gifts will purchase essential equipment, furnishings, and technology for studios, galleries, auditoria, image library, and classrooms. Consider naming a room (gifts can be pledged over time) to honor a former professor, student or family member. To learn more about naming a room, contact the Franklin College Development Office at 706-542-4658.

As always, your gifts are vital in support of our educational mission. Help ensure that the Lamar Dodd School of Art continues to be at the forefront of arts education and research by supporting endowed professorships, research and travel funds, graduate fellowships, distinguished visitng artists and scholars.
