Dear First Name:
Thanks to you, Felicia is busy planning her future.
This year she’ll be graduating from St. Joseph’s University – the first in her family to graduate college. She’s applied to nine medical schools with plans on becoming a pediatrician.
In 2001 when Felicia began the XYZ program, thoughts of becoming a doctor had never entered her head. Her parents had arrived in the United States from Jamaica. “They’ve supported me in everything I’ve ever wanted to do,” she says, “but they’ve never been to college.”
Your gift of $XXX has helped to buy the books, pay the teachers’ stipends and grow our summer programming so that kids like Felicia have a chance.
We look forward to sharing the program’s success with you in our quarterly newsletter. In the meantime, if you would like to schedule a visit to see, firsthand, the difference your gift is making, please contact Mary Development at 555.555.5555. Our sincere thanks for your support throughout the years.
John Q. Boardmember, President
