Fellow Alumni,You’ve seen a lot of emails and mailings this month as we approach the end of the fiscal year. Thank you for your patience with these. Good news, the end of FY18 is tomorrow, June 30.Thank you to everyone who has already donated. As of yesterday, we are on track to match our alumni participation percent from last year at 21.5% We just need a few more donors to get us over that level. And we only need about 100 more donors to bring us up to 22% participation! The link to donate is here.Here’s how you can help:
- If you’ve already given, thank you! Consider reaching out to your classmates and reminding them of the end of the fiscal year deadline. There’s a lot of good news to share this year — some of which your fellow alumni may not be aware of. As a start, you can pass along the Board’s approval of the The Cooper Union Plan To Return To Full-Tuition Scholarships that will bring us back to free!
- If you haven’t given, please consider making a gift. By giving to the Annual Fund, you contribute to the pool of money that “keeps the lights on” — it’s the day-to-day fund that supports the students. You are also showing your support for Cooper Union by increasing the percentage of alumni participation. This is an important metric when other fundraising organizations are approached for their support. Please click here to donate.
- And no matter what, stay in touch. The CUAA is a fully volunteer-run organization, and we need your support to help prioritize our activities and positions.
Thank you, again, for your patience and support at this busy time! Karina Tipton CE’99 and Carol Wolf A’84
Co-Chairs, CUAA Annual Fund Committee
The CUAA encourages support of the Annual Fund as the top choice for alumni, parents and friends looking to make donations to Cooper Union. An Annual Fund donation is unrestricted, making it a flexible and instantly available source of student funding that can be used when and where it is needed the most. If you would prefer to donate toward this fundraising effort now rather than receive a call, please make your tax deductible gift here. Gifts to this year’s Annual Fund may be made through June 30, 2018
