Thanking Your Scholarship Donor

This is a required part of receiving an endowment! The endowed scholarships are funded through generous contributions made by our alumni, industry partners and friends of the University. It is important to acknowledge those contributions that help ease the financial burden of attending college for so many students. 
Scholarship donors are interested in learning about the students they support. The goal of a thank you letter to your donor is to thank them for the generous contribution to your education and to share a little about yourself so that your donors can learn about you.
Suggestions for Writing a Thank You Letter
  • Be sure to include the date and a proper closing (such as Sincerely).
  • Reference the full name of your scholarship/award in the body of your letter.
  • Do not reference the amount of your scholarship award.
  • Put your personality in the letter. Help the donor to understand who you are and how their gift is going to impact your future. Express enthusiasm.
  • Use the words “thank you.”
  • Be clear and concise.
  • Check and recheck spelling and grammar!
  • Ask someone to proof read your letter.
