In the business world, one of the most important ways to measure success is “ROI” – Return On Investment. We treasure the concept of getting far more back than we put in, and really, why not? It’s just good business sense.
For this week only, ending May 26, Mercyhurst University alumni like you and I can get perhaps the biggest bang for our buck ever when we decide to support our alma mater. And when I say “buck,” I mean $1.
If you could give Mercyhurst $1 and see it turned into $51, that would be pretty amazing ROI, right? That’s the deal – this week only! I’m reaching out to Hurst alumni near and far because deals like this just don’t come around every day, and because Mercyhurst grads like us are smart, we know a good deal when we see one.
Between now and May 26, the university is on a mission to welcome 501 new donors to this year’s Annual Fund. (You know, the really important fund that provides valuable financial aid; ensures strong academics, athletics and arts programs; strengthens the library and keeps the Mercy mission going strong.) Why 501 new donors? It’s in honor of the street address you and I used to call home: 501 East 38th.
Here’s all you have to do: Head to giving.mercyhurst.edu/FACE before May 26 and give any amount you’d like – as little as $1 - to your favorite area of the Annual Fund. (You can even honor a favorite Mercyhurst faculty member, administrator, coach or employee through the FACE Campaign.) When you give, Mercyhurst’s Board of Trustees will add $50 to your gift. It’s that simple! But hurry – this offer is only good for the first 501 new donors to take advantage!
If you aren’t sure whether you quality as a “new donor,” think back to your last gift to Mercyhurst. If it was before May 31, 2013, you are a new donor this year. If you last gave after May 31, 2013, then here’s a perfect opportunity to give again before the fiscal year ends May 31, 2014. And if you can’t remember ever supporting Mercyhurst, I guarantee there’s never been a better time. It’s a free $50 to help you give back – Carpe Diem and give before May 26!
