Cari’s birthday was February 10. Each year at this time, all of us—her friends, family, and Columbia Business School classmates—naturally reflect on the remarkable impact she made on all whose lives she touched.
Through your generosity, we are only $4,000 shy of the $75,000 goal for the Cari Widmyer ’06 Memorial Scholarship. We are writing today to thank you for your kind support of this living tribute, and ask you to consider making an additional gift in order to make her scholarship a reality for generations to come.
Once endowed, her scholarship will begin its journey supporting Columbia Business School students who embody her unique personal and professional qualities—but to get there, we need your help.
Through June 30, 2018, you can make an additional gift via the crowdfunding website we’ve created at https://crowdfund.columbia.edu/project/5858/updates/1.
What you give right now will help achieve the threshold necessary for the School to endow the scholarship in perpetuity. Of course, it is our hope that even after meeting this minimum, Cari’s scholarship will continue to grow in impact. After June 30, you can make a gift any time:
- on Columbia Business School’s website by including a note to allocate your contribution to the Cari Widmyer ’06 Memorial Scholarship.
- by contacting Jennifer Cole, senior associate director of Major Gifts at the Business School, at email@example.com or 212-851-1808.
As Cari was a light to all of us, it is only fitting that we honor her memory through this scholarship, which will keep her legacy burning bright through future generations of Columbia Business School students.
Many heartfelt thanks for your support.
