    Naming rights have always been on the market.

      got his name on the building, of course. He got naming rights not only to the building but to a few other things as well.

      That pays for the bricks and mortar. It doesn't pay for the staff in the bldg, or the monthly electric bill, or the copier machines and supplies, or...

        I had your previous comment in the same vein in mind when I made mine.

        Endowments with a fairly predictable cash flow and few strings aren't as sexy but are a lot more helpful.

          Decades ago I was a staffer in an operation that underwent a massive expansion and capital campaign. Great new building, designed purposefully. One major business leader and donor refused to give to the bldg. fund. Insisted on setting up an endowment for operating expenses. Smart fella, and much appreciated for it.
