Securing the Ziglar Legacy

Zig Ziglar is a man of vision, a man with big dreams. To establish the Zig Ziglar Center for Ethical Leadership at Southern Nazarene University an endowment of $4,000,000 is needed. The friends of Zig have an opportunity to step forward and honor the life, work and legacy of Zig Ziglar-to become Ziglar Legacy Builders. Several Ziglar Legacy Builders have already stepped forward, including a lead gift of $1,000,000 from Mike and Sheila Ingram. Now additional gifts are needed to help make the Zig Ziglar Center for Ethical Leadership at Southern Nazarene University a reality. Gifts will support the mission, work and personnel of the Center staff who will operate in the SNU School of Business facility. Please think carefully about the kind of commitment you are able to make to preserve the Ziglar principles, honor Zig’s life and promote ethical leadership now and well into the future. If you are interested, a number of “naming opportunities” exist.
