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.
John B. & Geraldine Goddard

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.
