Dear friends of ECU's German program,
ECU's German program now has its own 501(c)(3) fund to support German Studies here in Eastern North Carolina and to which anyone can make a tax-deductible contribution.
With this fund, ECU's German program will be able to provide qualified German majors and minors with a stipend for study in a German-speaking country, to present their original research at academic conferences, or to pursue advanced undergraduate study in German Studies in North America (some institutions such as Princeton periodically offer relevant summer seminars for highly qualified undergraduates). The fund will also help our program host German-related cultural events on and off campus, including in local schools that otherwise have no offerings in German language or culture.
If you would like to support our program and its students with a tax-deductible gift, you may do so with a check (made out to ECU Foundation, Inc., with German Studies Fund in the memo line), mailed to:
Ms. Jennifer Tripp
Major Gift Officer
Greenville Centre, Suite 1100
Mail Stop 301
East Carolina University
Greenville NC 27858-4353
Please don't forget that some employers match employee contributions, and it's a great way to "double" your impact. Unfortunately, online giving is not currently available as ECU's site undergoes maintenance.
If you have questions about this fund or its objectives, please do not hesitate to contact me (my information is below). In the meantime, and on behalf of my colleagues, vielen Dank!
Prof. David Smith
