Give to the JCSU Fund

End of year give fund


Dear JCSU Alumni:

I am calling on you today with a sense of urgency to ask for your support of Johnson C. Smith University. With approximately 30 days remaining in the fiscal year, we are in the final countdown to shore up private support for the upcoming 2013-2014 academic year. Therefore, I am asking that you make your gift to the JCSU Fund by no later than June 30, and help our students achieve their dreams.

The Annual Fund impacts every facet of the JCSU experience including scholarships, student life, faculty/staff development, band and choir, physical space and facilities and academic programming. Through the Annual Fund, we ensure that the University has the resources it needs to continue to deliver an education of the highest caliber. Please know your personal investment in the University has a tremendous impact on our ability to uphold our rich tradition of excellence.

We have attached a donor listing of gifts that have been processed as of May 20, 2013. Please review this current listing and make sure that your name is accurately reflected. The final donor listing for this fiscal year, including gifts received July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013, will be presented in the President’s Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2013. You may contact Mel Davis, our Annual Fund Officer, at (704) 378-3577 or if you have any questions regarding how your name is listed.

If you have not made your donation yet, remember gifts must be processed online or by phone or postmarked by June 30 to be printed in the final President’s Report.

Thank you in advance for your support of JCSU!

P.P.S. You may be able to double your support of JCSU students through your corporate matching gifts program. Please contact your human resource department to learn if your corporation offers this employee benefit. Thank you in advance!
