So if somebody donates a huge chunk of change, could they get a forum named after them?
I'm not in charge, so I can't say, but certainly that's how the schools and hospitals do things. (I was once bored enough to poke around the Yale University website where I found a public gift list. The following numbers are made up, as I can't remember the exact figures but it listed things like naming rights for a classroom at a million bucks. An endowed chair (named professorship) at five million. Your name on the main building of one of the new colleges they're building? A cool $150 million. It was hilarious.)
