TCSPP LAUNCHES ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS
(LOS ANGELES) (December 6, 2012) – The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP), a nonprofit graduate school devoted to psychology and the behavioral sciences, invites its faculty, staff, alumni, and friends to support its Annual Giving Campaign. For the first time, the 2012-2013 campaign, titled “The Promise of Opportunity,” is focused on building a need-based scholarship fund for students with an initial fundraising goal of $100,000.
“Promise of Opportunity” reinforces the message that TCSPP’s faculty, staff and alumni must unite to support the school's most precious resource: students. The institution is dedicated to raising funds to help students achieve their academic and professional goals, and help ease the cost of tuition.
This national program, implemented across all three TCSPP campuses in Chicago, Southern California and Washington, D.C., highlights student testimonials that speak to the impact the scholarships will have on supporting their studies and their practicum work in communities around the world.
“We are so proud to be able to direct our personal giving in this way,” said Michele Nealon-Woods, Psy. D., National President of TCSPP. “The focus of this year’s campaign truly shows our dedication to our students and our mission.”
The campaign launched with an appeal to employees, alumni and friends, and provides a link to the TCSPP ‘Giving’ page where donors may select the type of gift they’d like to give. Additional appeals and progress updates will be shared using a variety of traditional and digital communication tools throughout the upcoming year. To enhance donor recognition, three giving clubs associated with gift ranges will be established, each with its own recognition benefits: President’s Circle ($1,000 - $4,999); Chairman’s Circle ($5,000 - $9,999); and Founder’s Circle ($10,000+).
