NAME Endowment Update 2

August 17, 2016

With today's gift to the NAME Endowment, we are now at 76% of our goal to create a School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering endowment.  

So far in this campaign, 48 donors have given $19,024 to help your program serve students and give the funds needed to help grow the program.

THANK YOU to all of you who have been apart of this campaign.  We know our $25,000 goal is a high goal to achieve and believe NAME alumni can help make this goal possible.

As you may have noticed, the deadline of the campaign has been extended to the end of August, so we have just 14 days to raise the remaining $6,000 to reach our goal.

If you have not given yet, please make a tax deductible gift to the NAME endowment.  This endowment is important to your program as privately raised funds are needed to run the program and educate students. 

And, please share the campaign link with your friends and network via Facebook, Twitter, or email.

Thank you for your support and if you are near the UNO campus, please stop by and see us in the College of Engineering, 9th floor.
