Thank a Donor

Your partnership in connecting with donors is essential—donors who hear from their students are even more enthusiastic to continue giving. With your help, we can achieve our $150 Million Student Support Initiative fundraising goal, which could double the amount of financial support available for students like you.

Please take a few moments to tell your scholarship donor how much their gift means to you!

  • Your Thank You Note

    Below are a few questions to help you prepare your thank you note. These are meant as guidelines rather than rules—what’s important is that your thank you note is authentic to your voice and experience. Please be sure your entire thank you letter is a minimum of 200 words in length.

    If you'd prefer to write your own thank you note, you can attach a Word document or PDF using the link below.

  • Submit Your Photo

    In addition to your thank you note, you are encouraged to submit a photo to share with your donor. To ensure the best possible photo print quality, we recommend a color photo in .jpg file format (300 dpi resolution), with an uncluttered background. If you do not have photo editing software, we recommend the free online photo editing tool
