Since the announcement two weeks ago that an anonymous donor had offered to match all future contributions to the campaign, we have received $500 in new gifts, all of which have been doubled to move us $1,000 closer to the goal of $5,000. A big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the Youth Writing project!
We're ten days from the end of our campaign now - it ends on January 15, and we have a little over $2,000 left to raise. Please spread the word to friends and colleagues and businesses that might be willing to support this program.
We're looking forward to moving into the implementation phase and bringing busloads of area middle school students to UMass for an inspiring day of learning, writing, sharing, and experiencing a college campus. We know that this event will be transformative for many of them.
Thank you again for your support!
