Happy Holidays! Now that you have opened that last gift, ate a big meal, watched some sports on T.V. and got bored enough to read this blog post, it’s time to consider sending one last gift: a year-end donation to UCF. Funding education is about investing in hope. Gifting a deserving student the opportunity to earn a college degree offers the hope of a brighter future for an entire family. Gifting support to hire the best faculty in the world and bring them to UCF, holds the promise of building a more dynamic Orlando economy. Gifting money to help fund research, or kick start our entrepreneurial projects, holds the promise of changing our entire world.
Kelly wants me to remind all of you that to ensure your year-end giving to the UCF Foundation qualifies for a tax deduction in 2013, mailed cash or checks must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2013. To ensure that credit card contributions qualify for a 2013 year deduction, head to www.ucffoundation.org no later than 12:00 noon, Tuesday, December 31, 2013. Other organizations will have their own cut-off time for credit cards so be sure to check with them first.
Know that all gifts come with our gratitude. Knightro thanks you. The College of Business thanks you. And, I thank you. Now let’s kick some butt in the Fiesta Bowl. UCF has arrived people both on the field and in the classroom. Charge On!
