Donor Photo

Film Studies professor, Ron Perrier, is known by many St. Cloud State alumni who had the opportunity to take one of his theater and film studies classes during his tenure at St. Cloud State. Perrier estimates that his 40 years of teaching allowed him to impact more than 50,000 students.

Perrier is ensuring that his impact will live on beyond his own life by not only establishing an endowed scholarship for Film Studies students, but recently he's made arrangements to leave his home to St. Cloud State - a gift that will ultimately provide an additional $400,000 to further fund the Ronald G. Perrier Scholarship in Film Studies.

"Ron has deep feelings for St. Cloud State and he wanted to find a creative way to make his ultimate gift," said Director of Gift Planning, Chad Marolf. "Gift planning provides donors with options to make a thoughtful impact without having to come up with immediate cash."
