THANK YOU TBIC!
One of the purposes of our club is to provide a scholarship award to a local student interested in attending the University of Iowa....once again the TBIC and it's members and friends came through. With your help and the help of the University of Iowa Alumni Association a very grateful local student received a University of Iowa Alumni Association IOWA Club scholarship award for the 2010 - 2011 academic year ($2000/TBIC + $1,000/UIAA match). We received a thank you letter from her and in the letter she stated: "Awarding this scholarship to me allows me to better focus on my school work and not worry about paying for loan payments and other expenses at Iowa." An excellent job by the TBIC and UIAA in helping her dream to graduate from the University of Iowa come true!
A MAJOR MILESTONE REACHED!
The TBIC announced a couple of years ago the establishment of the Tampa Bay IOWA Club Scholarship Endowment Fund, a mission was created. The board called and you, the Tampa Bay IOWA Club, answered, in a big way. the board developed a 5 year plan to reach the $50,000 goal and with an initial donation of $20,000, we had 5 years to raise $30,000. We not only reached the goal, but did it 3 years early! To date, you have grown the TBIC Scholarship Endowment Fund to more than $50,000!! Now that it's considered fully funded, it will support one or more annual scholarships for students in the Tampa Bay area into perpetuity. Selection shall be in accordance with standard requirements set forth by UI Office of Financial Aid (academic promise, financial need, etc.) and the UI Alumni Association, with the scholarship to be awarded at the onset of the spring semester. Preference will be given to full-time students in this order: seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen. The scholarship and awardees shall be published in a manner consistent with established procedures with the Alumni Association. We expect to raise additional funds through:
Interest earned on existing assets
Direct donations from members
Matching funds from member employers
We thank you for your generous support and although we have reached our first goal we will continue to accept additional donations. If you're interested in additional information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a donation brochure.
Be sure to check out the calendar for all upcoming events....we hope to see you there!
