David L. Bonsall Endowment

for the Student Leader Fellowship Program

The SLFP Endowment was created in 2001 to help ensure the SLFP could continue its commitment to developing competent, ethical, and community-centered leaders. More recently, the Fund was renamed to honor a key contributor, role model, and legacy of the SLFP.

If you would like to donate to the SLFP, you can do so at connect.nmu.edu/giveslfp. We encourage you to consider supporting student leaders by donating to this program!

The SLFP Endowment Fund was officially renamed the David L. Bonsall Endowment for the Student Leader Fellowship Program. Dave was instrumental in creating the SLFP.  He helped write the initial grant that allowed for the creation of the program and was involved with coordinating and sustaining the program for 22 years. Currently, Dave is still involved with the SLFP in a number of ways. Perhaps, most important of all, Dave lives his life in a way that exemplifies the vision and goals of this tremendous program. For these reasons and more, the SLFP endowment will forever bear his name.

Since its creation, SLFP members have logged 106,624 internship hours at 437 different sites in the Marquette community. We are incredibly grateful for the 800 people who have made donations over the years and would love to see that number grow. Every contribution helps us get closer to ensuring that the SLFP will forever be a part of the NMU experience.
