See how Peter Sulick made a difference at his alma mater through an endowed chair:

“FAR provides a level of expertise that most people do not have but need. If you want to have the best outcome, then you want to educate yourself on a variety of things. And what FAR offers is really important from that point of view. FAR’s help was critical in the ultimate outcome for us.”
