Class of 2010
A Message to Our Classmates in the Class of 2010:
(written in May 2009)
Throughout our time as students at the UW School of Pharmacy, private gifts from alumni and friends have provided us with countless opportunities. Whether we knew it or not, these gifts have been helping enhance our educational, research, outreach and practice experiences.
We would like to show our gratitude to the many donors who have helped us along the way. What better way to thank them for their investment in us than to embrace their spirit of giving? To carry on their tradition, a group of us in the Class of 2010 have launched the first-ever UW School of Pharmacy P-4 Campaign!
The P-4 Campaign, which will take place throughout our fourth year, will create a gift to the School of Pharmacy from our class. Our goal is for every member of the Class of 2010 to make a gift. What matters most, regardless of the amount you can give, is that you show your commitment to supporting the School. We have even created a special gift fund to honor a professor who has inspired so many of us – Michaelene "Micki" Kedzierski. It is called the Micki Kedzierski Pharmacy Service Excellence Fund.
The Class of 2010 gift will be presented to Dean Baillie at our graduation ceremony next June. We want to show everyone in attendance the spirit of the Class of 2010! In fact, we hope all the pharmacy classes after us will be inspired to start their own class gifts, too.
We can even continue giving to the fund after we graduate. Wouldn't it be great if we could raise enough money over time to present a scholarship on a yearly basis?
Our sincere hope is that every member of the Class of 2010 will be inspired to contribute. This is our chance to make a difference in the lives of future pharmacy students. The suggested gift is $20.10, but any amount is welcomed. The success of the School of Pharmacy P-4 Campaign depends on you!
