In this issue of Reach you've read about work by faculty, alumni and students that has ushered in new ideas and practices around the globe. Your philanthropy can support exciting work like this.
The U of M Foundation has recently created a new program, Fast Start 4 Impact, to enable new endowment gifts and pledges of $50,000 and above to make an impact immediately. It works like this: the University reinvests its own investment earnings into your new fund for the first four years, allowing your principal to grow even as payouts are made to students. There's no waiting for your gift to grow.
Thank you for all you do for CLA and the University. May 2013 be filed with great joy for you and yours.
