Make a Gift

Donor Spotlight

Steve & Margaret Eaton

A former Hilltopper student-athlete and 1972 alumnus is once again giving back to his alma mater in support of the men's basketball program.

Steve and Margaret Eaton of Atlanta, recently made a gift of $150,000 to Western. Of that gift, $100,000 will support the Men's Basketball Enhancement Fund, and $50,000 will be used to create an endowed scholarship for Hilltopper Basketball.

This gift will complement the $75,000 gift for the Basketball Enhancement Fund that the Eatons made in August 2000, with an additional $50,000 given to the Gordon Ford College of Business.

"Western has a great tradition," Eaton said. "Margaret and I are particularly excited by the dynamic growth and progress of Western over the last few years under the leadership of President Gary Ransdell and we wanted to be part of that. Obviously, our hearts are close to Hilltopper basketball and Coach Horn, and we believe it is important for the program to have the financial viability necessary to attract quality student athletes. Hilltopper basketball is one of several areas in which Western demonstrates national prominence."
