What’s new in the news? This has been the best year in fundraising so far! I’ve been told we still have money coming in from different sources going to the endowment fund, but right now, our bank account shows $16,870.67. I’m constantly blown away by your generosity and support of this project. I don’t think I ever expected this when I first started raising money back in 2012. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Every month, as a way of saying thank you to folks who donate to the fund, we give away a credit towards a custom pen. This month, from 53 entries, number 50 was picked. Congrats to Eric A! I’ll be sending you an email soon.
To contribute to the scholarship fund you can buy some post cards, notebooks, or simply make a financial contribution. You can also donate your old pens and other writing instruments to us to auction off.
This month’s auctions are listed here- AUCTIONS.
We have 7 pens and a Tibaldi scraps custom pen up for grabs. To bid just leave a comment in the comments section of each page at the bottom. If you can’t see the comments section, try a different browser, device, or clearing your cache. Auctions end January 30th at 6pm Central US time.
It’s also time for you high school seniors to start submitting scholarship applications. If you are a senior, or you know a senior, let them know to apply. Scholarships range from $500-1000 each! It’s easy to apply.
Let me know if you have any questions about anything at all.
