As you may all know YU is in a very precarious financial situation to the point where a lot is getting cut. Most importantly, this includes student scholarships, which is a core item to preserve.
The plan is to crowd fund and endow a scholarship for students in need and provide perpetual funding for student scholarships. Through this initiative we hope to enable Alumni to enlist their warm networks and reach YU alumni, across all ages, all over the world.
In order for this to work, the rules of the game are as follows:
1 – Join by clicking on Fundraise for this Campaign and set up a profile
2 – Make a commitment to raise $1,000.
3 – Reach out to at least 4 Alumni to create profiles (think of classmates, relatives, friends etc…)
4 – Get to work!
This institution plays a central role in our lives and non-alumni as well. We all may be busy but consider one thing; Did YU have a hand in making you too busy? If it did, then let’s do what we to give future students the experience we did.
(If you would like to contribute by writing a check please email email@example.com for directions so the check can be properly applied to this initiative)
