The Fund for Asbury University
“1,325: A Gift for Every Student”
In this 2013-14 fiscal year, The Fund for Asbury University is presenting alumni, parents and friends of the University with a bold opportunity to directly impact current students in an unprecedented way.
In 2013-14, every dollar given to the Fund for Asbury University will be designated for student scholarships.
The “1,325: A Gift for Every Student” initiative provides the opportunity to make a gift directly to student scholarships (which will continue to be distributed to the young men and women who apply and are selected for awarded or need-based tuition assistance).
The goal is for at least 1,325 alumni, parents and friends of Asbury (matching the number of scholarship eligible undergraduates enrolled last year) to make a gift above their previous year’s gift.
Last fall, we invited alumni, parents and friends to increase their gift to The Fund for Asbury University over the previous year, and if gift was made by December 31, 2013, the Board of Trustees would match the increased portion of all gifts up to $250,000. We are humbled to share with you that 988 alumni, parents and friends increased their gifts by over $274,000! Thank you for your caring and generous support!
Impressed by the level of support for student scholarships, the Board of Trustees is offering to match an additional $200,000 of increased support. So from now until June 30, 2014, every gift to The Fund for Asbury University that is an increase of the previous year’s amount will have the increased portion matched.
1,325 in not just an arbitrary number or a simple goal to attain. It is 1,325 different dreams, stories and lives that will impact the Kingdom because you impacted their educational and spiritual experience with your generosity.
The “1,325: A Gift for Every Student” initiative can put academic excellence and spiritual vitality within reach of even more young people. Will you help us?
