Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and who has helped get the word out about this fund.
The first goal of this campaign was to raise $10K to establish an account for the fund. We hit that goal in just a few days thanks to your generosity!
The next and most critical goal is ENDOWMENT for the fund. That will occur when he hit $50,000. At that point, our fund will be endowed and permanently award $3,000 every year to a student. And once we do, our work will continue. The annual awards can potentially become larger until we reach a full ride scholarship - the ultimate goal of this effort..
The university's Fall crowdfunding campaign ended on Friday, with overwhelming support. But our work is not finished yet. Yesterday, we were informed that we can continue using this crowdfunding site until the end of the calendar year.
Let's keep our eyes on the ball. Let's try to reach endowment by the end of the year!
