John Kratz’s first gift to Heidelberg came back in 1965, two years after his graduation, at a time he and his late wife, Beverly, were newly married and starting to raise a family. It was for $10. His next gift – also $10 – came 13 years later. Since then, though, John has been extremely insightful and generous with his financial support of his alma mater.
