    Good morning, 

    My head is not in the game this week and I forgot it is Labor Day and many people are out. We were going to move this to September 10, 2021. I do apologize. We will be meeting next week. 

    I need panelists for this Friday! Please contact me if you are interested. 

    Just a reminder that Hot Topics for Donor Relations/ Gift Compliance will occur Friday, September 10, 2021, at 2 PM EST on understanding graduate support/fellowship funds. We will explore the following:

    • Understanding what is the difference between a graduate award, graduate scholarship,  fellowship, or other graduate support

    • Supplemental stipends and stipends

    • Endowment minimums for graduate support and fellowships 

    • Developing standard language for graduate support and fellowships

    We are looking for panelists to help lead the call. Please contact me if you are interested.
