Dear Fellow Badgers:
Greetings from the Snow College Alumni Association Board. As a board, our goal is
to reconnect alumni and assist the College as it provides an outstanding, one-of-a-kind
educational experience for its students. The Alumni Association Board has established
an Alumni Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships for deserving Snow College students
annually. The scholarships will be awarded to students in need who demonstrate academic
excellence, character, and commitment.
In 2013, to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Snow College, we set a $125,000 goal for the endowment fund. This amount will allow us to fund two scholarships a year from the interest accrued. Once this scholarship is fully funded, Snow College students will benefit every year for generations to come. Since Snow College has a rich heritage of generational alumni, we are making a special appeal to alumni families. If we can get just 125 families, groups, or individuals to give a gift or pledge of $1,000, we can easily achieve our goal!
Donations to the scholarship fund of $1,000 or more will be recognized on a special
commemorative plaque that is located on our recognition wall in the beautiful Karen
H. Huntsman Library. This plaque will list the names of the first 125 families, groups,
or individuals who make this legacy commitment.
You can help impact generations to come -- one student at a time -- by making a contribution today. Every gift, regardless of the amount, is needed and greatly appreciated. You can be assured that your gift to the Alumni Scholarship Fund will go directly to help deserving students receive that firm foundation to their future success.Thank you for your continued support of Snow College and its incredible students. Give today and start making a difference in a truly profound way!
