I am a Trustee of the charitable foundation of the State University of New York at Old Westbury. In the time that I have come to know this institution, I have seen the difference it can make in young people's lives as a place to obtain a cost-effective University education.
My position is a volunteer position that I have agreed to because I support the mission of the school. The opportunities in provides to students of modest means in the New York City and Long Island area to obtain the education to better their lives and move up in the world are significant, and always need financial, as well as moral support.
Though the tuition is modest, the students are of modest means. I am therefore reaching out to you to ask if you can support SUNY Old Westbury in the funding of a scholarship to help students who need assistance in gathering funds to pay even this modest tuition.
I am donating a modest $55, and ask whomever is able to match our donation and assist us in reaching our goal to match our contribution, or in the alternative, contribute as they see fit. Thank you for taking the tie to read this message, and stay safe this holiday season.
