Thank You For a Strong Finish

October 06, 2017

Our campaign for the Lang Global Scholars Fund has ended, and thanks to you, we've finished very close to our goal. It was exciting to watch the donations come in over the last few hours.

Every dollar we have raised will support an ISP student during their study abroad experience next year.

Thank you very much!

We've raised just over $2,000! THANK YOU!

October 05, 2017

With only one day left in our campaign, we are at just over $2,000 raised for the Lang Global Scholars Fund.  Please know how much we value your participation in this effort. Your generosity will make a difference for an ISP student who dreams of studying overseas next year. 

We look forward to sending you a report in spring 2018 on the student selected to receive the Lang Global Scholar Award.

When we come together, it is amazing what we can accomplish.  Thank you!

 

In the final stretch!

September 27, 2017

Our campaign for the Lang Global Scholars Fund has just over a week to go. Thank you so much for your support of the fund. At Sunday's ISP Reunion, Tim was visibly moved to see so many alumni return to campus and so many donors support the scholarship in his name. Below is a group photo of the alumni and current students at the event.

Let's try to honor Tim by making it to at least $2,000 for the Lang Global Scholars Fund. If you know of any classmates who haven't given yet, now is the time to encourage them to contribute. Be sure to reference the following URL in your communications:  http://minutefund.umass.edu/langglobalscholar

 

Almost at 50% Funded

September 18, 2017

Thanks to your generous contribution to the Lang Global Scholars Fund, we are at almost 50% of our goal.  We'd like to be at or above 50% for Tim's retirement party and ISP reunion this coming Sunday, so please spread the word about our campaign on social media and/or email.

Tell folks why you support the Lang Global Scholars Fund, and encourage others to follow your example. Be sure to include the following link: http://minutefund.umass.edu/langglobalscholar

Below is a photo of student Ana Maroldi '18 at her study abroad program in Tanzania. A fully-funded Lang Global Scholars Fund will provide an ISP student with financial need with the resources to learn from the landscapes and cultures of the world.

Over a Third of the Way There!

September 05, 2017

As of this weekend, we are over a third of the way to fully funding the Lang Global Scholars Fund. Thank you for coming together with others in the ISP community to contribute in this meaningful way.

We still have a long way to go, so please consider spreading the word about the campaign by social media and by reaching out to former ISP students by email. Consider this: if every ISP alum who hasn't given yet contributed $15 each, we would be just over our goal of $3,000, so it's important to mention that gifts in any amount truly make a difference. Be sure to include a link to the campaign webpage in your communications:  http://minutefund.umass.edu/langglobalscholar

Below is a photo of student Emma, an ISP student who studied abroad in Ireland last year. A successful campaign for the Lang Global Scholars Fund will help more students like Emma be able to study overseas.

Match Funds Applied!

August 28, 2017

THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far to the Lang Global Scholars Fund. We have qualified for the matching funds from our group of alumni and friends and they have been applied to the total raised so far!

In order to reach our goal of $3,000 we need you to spread the word. Please share on your social media and emails about why you gave and encourage others to contribute. Remind folks that gifts at ALL amounts make a difference. Here's the URL for our campaign page:  http://minutefund.umass.edu/langglobalscholar

 

Off to a great start!

August 25, 2017

Thank you to those of you who have already donated to the Lang Global Scholars Fund. The first $300 we raise is being matched by a group of alumni and friends, so your gifts go even further! Your contributions to the Lang Global Scholars Fund will help students like Tenzin, who recently studied in Taiwan and is pictured below.

Please don't forget to share the campaign on facebook to tell your friends why you gave and to encourage others to give.  Here's the URL: http://minutefund.umass.edu/langglobalscholars
