University Receives First Donation Online

An alumna from the Class of 1999 became the first donor through George Mason’s new Development website last week–just hours after the site went live.

The alumna, Becky Ault of St. Louis, was viewing the university website and saw the words “Supporting Mason” on the home page. She clicked, read about giving to the George Mason University Foundation, and decided to donate. The Development website is connected to a secure server, permitting donors to make pledges as well as contribute online.

Ault, a psychology major from Sarasota, Fla., works in the annual giving office of St. Louis University.
