ORONO — The University of Maine’s Women in Leadership and Philanthropy (WLP) program has created UMaine’s first-ever Charitable Gift Catalog, a 23-page brochure that describes the ways in which alumni and other friends can support UMaine students through contributions.
Featuring a series of photos, the brochure provides information about giving opportunities related to student scholarships and fellowships; research, student life, the UMaine President’s Club and the WLP Presidential Challenge Fund. The latter initiative aims to match a $25,000 university investment with private gifts to support student-faculty research projects and to provide operational support for continuing the WLP program.
“As the calendar year winds down and the holiday season progresses, many people are considering a philanthropic contribution as an alternative to traditional gift-giving,” says Barbara Beers, UMaine senior philanthropic adviser. ”This catalog provides clear, useful information about some of the most meaningful ways that donor contributions can help UMaine students achieve their goals.”
Copies of the catalog are available by contacting UMaine’s Development Office at 207-581-1151 or Lisa.firstname.lastname@example.org.
