Thank A Donor Week Offers Students Chance to Recognize Scholarship Support
The week of November 7 marked the first official Thank a Donor Week at Yeshiva University. Organized by the team that oversees stewardship and donor recognition, the week offered students the opportunity to write thank you cards to donors, who make it possible for so many students to attend YU.
Some 75 percent of undergraduates receive scholarship assistance and the average scholarship award exceeds $20,000. In the 2011-2012 academic year, YU has awarded $38 million to its undergraduates. Such support is only possible thanks to the generosity of donors who, despite challenging economic times, know well the value of a YU education and contribute to help students attend Yeshiva College, Stern College for Women and SYMS School of Business, no matter their financial situation.
So far, more than 500 thank you cards have already been signed by grateful students on the Wilf and Beren Campuses.
