Dear friends of ECU's German program,
ECU's German program 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. You can support our program and its students with a tax-deductible gift in at least three easy ways:
· IMPORTANT: "Click here to choose designation(s) for your gift."
· In the popup window, choose the "Foreign Language" funds and click "+" to open.
· Select "German Studies Priority Fund"
(Payable to ECU Foundation, Inc., put "German Studies Priority Fund" in the memo line). Mail to:
Ms. Jennifer Tripp, Major Gift Officer
Greenville Centre, Suite 1100
Mailstop 301, East Carolina University
Greenville NC 27858-4353
With this Priority 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 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
