Student Endowment Fund

The Student Endowment Fund has surpassed the $200,000 mark and is well on its way to our $500,000 goal.  Our success can be attributed to the strong support that the fund has received from our Sections and members.  At this year’s Annual Meeting in Denver, the Colorado-Wyoming Section became our second Platinum Level group contributor.  The following is a message from Craig Faessler, President of the Colorado-Wyoming Section:

The Colorado-Wyoming Section had the honor and pleasure of hosting the Western District annual meeting this past July.  Our local arrangements committee worked very hard to pull together another successful event for the District.  To kick off the event, the Colorado-Wyoming Section became only the second group to reach the “platinum” level of sponsorship for the Student Endowment Fund by donating $5,000 at the opening address.  We are continuing our efforts to raise funds for the Student Endowment Fund, as well as for our very energetic and successful Wyoming Student Chapter – Student Bowl Champions – and encourage other Sections to join us in the race to become the first “emerald” group contributors.
