Sentiments of Thanks
Alumni and donor contributions motivate our students, inspire our faculty, and hearten our entire university community. In the weeks leading up to our inaugural Thanks Beyond the Possible celebration the campus community came together to share gratitude and build a thank you card to acknowledge such generosity.
From all of us, we say: "Thanks Beyond the Possible!"
“The difference donor support makes for students at Case Western Reserve University is immense. This is a community. It is not about one student coming to college, it is about people working together to support one another so we can succeed as a group. Scholarship support allows students like me to attend this school and take advantage of all that Case Western Reserve has to offer.”
-Paul Fisher, Class of 2017
“Donations directly impact students, faculty and the Case Western Reserve community. By giving a donation, you're providing an opportunity to a student who may not have otherwise been able to attend Case Western Reserve University. You're promoting learning environments that produce deeper learning and you're providing opportunities for students to change the world."
-Megan Holmes, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences
“Your gift allows students the chance to fulfill their dreams without having to worry about financial limitation on those aspirations. You may give money, but in actuality, you give so much more, including your hopes and trust that students will make use of your gifts in a way that will further innovation in society.”
-Sierra Lipscomb, Class of 2019
“Donating to Case Western Reserve University is an opportunity to invest in the future. Our future leaders, future researchers, our future, is here at Case Western Reserve University."
-Dedra Hanna Adams, Director of Financial Aid, The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing
“Your support makes a world of a difference, you allow someone to pursue their dreams.”
-Daniel Ryave (CWR '16)
"It's not enough to make your own dreams possible, you have to make other people's dreams possible as well. When you think back to your time as a student, the facilities and equipment you used were provided for by donors and alumni who came before you. And so, as a donor myself, I think about that when I make a donation, because it's my opportunity now to pay that forward."
-Ian Charnas (CWR '05), Manager of think[box]
“College has been an incredible time of growth and change professionally, academically and personally. Donations to the university are helping not only the community of Cleveland but also the individual students in helping them achieve a better and brighter future.”
-Karun Kumar Rao (CWR '16)
A gift to Case Western Reserve University is a powerful expression of generosity. The university is profoundly grateful for the support of our alumni and friends.
During the past fiscal year, from July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016, thousands of alumni and donors supported students, faculty and innovative programs and learning environments at Case Western Reserve. We are grateful for each and every contribution that helps further Case Western Reserve. Highlighted in the illustrations below are a few examples of these inspiring contributions across campus.
