Alumni participation and support is imperative to the function and growth of any academic institution. The University’s new president, Dr. Naramin Farvardin, is hard at work proposing strategic new initiatives that will lead to an improved Stevens experience for both current and future students. Contributions from alumni and friends are important during these times of change, and your support will both improve our national rankings and also play a direct role in bringing new plans and projects to fruition.
Rise to the Challenge!
To help increase alumni participation, Dr. Lawrence T. Babbio ’66, Chairman of the Stevens Institute of Technology Board of Trustees has issued G.O.L.D. Rush, a million dollar matching gift campaign to foster increased support for the University.
With G.O.L.D. Rush, Dr. Babbio will evenly match every gift at a minimum of $50 with his own, which can be applied to any designation including the support of specific scholarships, athletic programs, or campus clubs to general donations to the Stevens Fund.
Not only is this campaign a fantastic opportunity to help improve your favorite aspects of Stevens, but it’s also a great way for young alumni to transition into the Edwin A. Stevens Society, requiring only half the normal gift amount to qualify for membership.
This is a participatory campaign so any donation counts to increase our overall participation rates! Your support is more important than the size of your gift.
We’re aiming to gain an additional 250 young alumni donors by the end of the 2012 fiscal year closing at the end of June, so we hope you can join in and take on this new challenge by giving now!
