2020 was a year like no other. It is hard to believe that a year could have gone so fast and so slow all at the same time. The students and program faculty figured out a way to close out their year, so that the students could graduate and become part of the healthcare workforce. Our alumni pivoted to telemedicine or working with PPE, always keeping patients top of mind during times of uncertainty. With all that was going on within our workplaces, our homes and with our patients, we took a small break from fundraising.
Once we re-found our voice and reminded ourselves of the value of this endowed fund to the future generation of genetic counselors, we came back strong. We closed out the year exceeding our goal of $20,000! Thank you to all of our donors who support this effort. It has been an honor to see how generous people can be with their dollars in support of the students and our future genetic counselor colleagues. Every dollar matters and every donor is truly appreciated.
As we move into 2021, we want to thank those who have consistently supported the fund (for the past 3 years) and our community contributors who have donated at least 2 years since the fund was started in 2018. Thank you for your support!
Finally, Giving Day is right around the corner and we are so close to our $25,000 funding goal. We would love to expand our reach by bringing new donors to the fund, please help us get the word out there. If you are thinking about giving, please remember “Just Give”. Your donation and support is noticed and appreciated!
