Today (September 30) is the last day to make a gift and have it count for Fiscal Year 2004.
The recent email from John Yeh, í71, had a great response, with many gifts made online and many messages letting us know that alumni had put a check in the mail. However, we still need more alumni to give this year to reach Johnís goal of 15%. If you were considering making a gift and giving back to Gallaudet, today is the day! As long as it is postmarked September 30, it will be included. Other colleges and universities boast 15%, 25%, and 30% participation from alumni. A higher rate will improve Gallaudetís ranking, encourage students to apply, and convince grant-makers that alumni believe in Gallaudet and that the University is a worthwhile investment for them.
Of course, if you want to give but canít make it by today, just be sure to send it before December 31, to have your gift counted among your fellow alumni this year and as a 2004 tax deduction.
Just remember -- this is a chance to bring Gallaudet to the next level!
How can you give? Two ways:
1) Print the attached form, fill it out, and send with your gift to:
Gallaudet University Office of Development
800 Florida Avenue, NE
Washington, DC 20002-3695
2) Call the Office of Development at (202) 651-5410 (TTY/Voice) and make a confidential gift with your Visa or MasterCard.
Please consider making a gift today. Together, we can make a difference for the students and for Gallaudet!
