[Update: December 11, 2014]

DSC_9410.jpgWe’re all on a deadline this time of year. As you finish your holiday shopping and set aside time for family, please remember the importance of supporting students in your community. This is an opportunity to make a real difference in the life of one young student. We’re halfway there but still need 50 gifts to meet our goal of 100 gifts for 100 years. Help keep the Centennial Scholarship available to students over the next 100 years of the School of Architecture.

You still have time to make a gift.


Warm wishes for the holidays,

DSC_6885.jpgOn Monday, Dean Fisher called on you to be one of the next 100 donors needed to keep the Architecture Centennial Scholarship alive in honor of the School of Architecture’s 100 years. If we receive 100 gifts by the end of the year, we’ll be able to award another scholarship to an architecture student. That’s 100 gifts for over 100 years of our program.

We live in a thriving community of practitioners and thought leaders committed to improving our society as a whole. Today, you have an opportunity to help one more student discover their passions in creating a better tomorrow. Support the next generation of architects at the University of Minnesota.

Consider giving students the opportunity to imagine, invent, and discover their passions at the school that helped shape your career and who you are today.


Best wishes,

Marc Swackhamer

School of Architecture Head

This is not a coupon, or a discount, or a sale. This is a different kind of offer – a chance to be 1 in 100. Last year, during the Centennial Challenge: 100 Gifts for 100 Years, alumni and friends like you established the Architecture Centennial Scholarship. This holiday giving season, we need your help. Give architecture students the opportunity to create a better tomorrow.

In this next century, we look forward to another year of achievement–starting with our students. Today’s students are driven to imagine, invent, and discover. Scholarships give them the freedom to pursue their dreams without financial burden. At a time when education has never been more expensive, you can help prepare the next generation to lead the way.

I know this remarkable school shaped you in unique ways. Consider giving today to support the next generation. Help us reach our goal of 100 Gifts for 100 years by December 31st.

Are you one of next 100?

Sincerely,
