Help us Cross the Finish Line
The Lawrence F. Griggs Scholarship Fund is well on it’s way towards endowment, but it’s not
there yet. Students really need your support in these times. We’re seeing it first in the trouble
they’re having finding jobs. “No one is hiring,” they say, “everyone is talking about the
economy!” Not only that, but there’s a freeze on hiring workstudy students as well.

We recognize these are difficult economic times for everyone, but this is your opportunity to
give money that you know will go directly to helping students. You can also choose to make a
pledge and pay in monthly installments.
We hope we’ve convinced you!
