Honor Roll of Alumni in the Business World

Goddard Investors

The Goddard Investors Program at Weber State University is a partnership between the John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics and individuals and firms committed to excellence in business education. The program recognizes donors who make a significant gift - $1,000 or more – to the Goddard/Dean’s Fund during a single year, with membership renewable on an annual basis.  

The Goddard Investors Program consists of donor recognition groups that represent different levels of giving to the Goddard/Dean’s Fund.  The greater your investment the greater your impact on the scholarships, fellowships, student activities, programs, and innovative teaching and research projects we are able to offer. 

All Goddard Investor Program members are recognized on the John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics website and in Weber State University’s Annual Report.  They are the first to hear of news from the John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics and receive invitations throughout the year to network with faculty and students at exclusive events. Click here to learn more.

John B. & Geraldine Goddard

Raised in Ogden, Utah, John B. Goddard returned from World War II to found Western  Mortgage Loan Corporation, United Savings Bank and Western Real Estate Development.  As his companies thrived throughout the 1970s John B. Goddard and Geraldine Goddard  thrived in the community. For John B. Goddard "[f]uture economic growth in this area is  dependent on business, and business is dependent on Weber State University[,]" and so,  in 1998 John B. Goddard and his wife, Geraldine, established an endowment for Weber  State University's School of Business & Economics. In honor of all that he has done the University, Weber State named the school after Mr. John B. Goddard. He and Geraldine are our first Goddard Investors.
