Alan Rose Accepts Harper Award from the University of Chicago
Alan Rose, CEO and majority owner of Rose Paving Co., a leader in national parking lot management, has been honored by the University of Chicago with the Harper Award for his generosity and philanthropic efforts. Alan, along with other donors to the University, was recognized at the Chicago Convenes ceremony on November 6 at the Adler Planetarium.
“I am thrilled and honored to accept the Harper Award on behalf of Rose Paving Company. Reaching out to the community is of tremendous importance to us and, through this planned giving, we hope to continue to help advance the vital work of the University, specifically in the Asthma & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Center,” stated Alan Rose, CEO.
Alan is both a Harper and Phoenix Society member and is included in the Founders Circle at the University of Chicago. Established by the Board of Trustees in 2000, the Phoenix Society honors individuals who make provisions in their estate plans or establish life-income gifts to benefit the University. These gifts provide important ways to strengthen and sustain the University’s future. The Trustees’ selection of the phoenix as the society’s symbol recognizes the vibrant link between the University’s history and its future.
The Harper Society was founded in 1999 to recognize those who have been most instrumental in enabling the University to realize the extraordinary vision of its first president, William Rainey Harper. It recognizes donors with significant cumulative giving. The Founders Circle is a recognition group within the Harper Society celebrating donors whose lifetime giving goes towards the endowment of professorships and scholarships, constructing new buildings, and funding scientific and medical research.
