Friends of the Waterfront
William "Bill" C. Covert Endowment for the Waterfront
In honor of Bill Covert’s 42 years of service to Eckerd College, the Friends of the Waterfront are excited to announce the establishment of the William “Bill” C. Covert Endowment for the Waterfront. Much like the cherished memories we made at Eckerd, endowments last in perpetuity—growing over time with ongoing contributions and providing dedicated funds for the programs they support. Therefore, the Friends of the Waterfront Advancement Committee has pledged $50,000 to launch this endowment for the Waterfront.
On behalf of our committee, we challenge all Waterfront alumni, parents, and friends to raise an additional $50,000 by next March, thus creating a $100,000 initial endowment that will continue Bill’s legacy and enrich the lives of Eckerd students for generations to come.
Please join us as a founding crew member. Any and all gifts are appreciated and help us toward our goals. To participate, please contact us for details or give online.
While we hope to exceed the $100,000 goal by next March, we also hope friends, parents, and the entire team of Waterfront alumni, from EC-SAR members to water skiers and sailors, take part in this unique opportunity to support a mentor and program that have meant the world to us. We are so grateful for all Bill has done for Eckerd College and look forward to demonstrating our appreciation by presenting him with this special tribute at Reunion Weekend, March 7–9, 2014.
Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to seeing you in March!
