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:

1.  By Credit Card Online

· Click on the ECU "Give" link here.

·  Enter the donation amount in $. 

·  Then under the Gift Designations section, click on the last option "I want to choose my own designation" 

·  When the "Designations" window pops up, type "German" into the search box and click the "German Studies Priority Fund" (be sure to leave the "Thomas Harriot College of Arts & Sciences" unchecked).

·  Then enter your donor information, click "Next," and follow the remaining instructions.

2.  By Credit Card via Phone

·  Call Jessica Nottingham, director of alumni relations and outreach for the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences, at 252-737-1753 to make your donation by phone with a credit card.

3. By Check

(Payable to ECU Foundation, Inc., put "German Studies Priority Fund" in the memo line).
Mail to: Diane Gerard

4. » Help with gifts of stock, estate planning, or corporate sponsorship.

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. Susanne Jones
