Dear Mr. Piazza:

Scholarship America thanks you for your recent gift. Your thoughtful gift is a vital investment in the future of our country and the young people who benefit. In September of 2003, more than 103,000 students received scholarships through Scholarship America programs like Dollars for Scholars. These students received more than $142 million dollars in scholarship assistance. Your support of Scholarship America makes this happen.

For so many of these students, these scholarships make the difference. At Scholarship America, we like to tell students that Now You Can! That’s right! Now You Can pursue your dreams. Now You Can be a doctor, a nurse, an engineer, a scientist, a social worker, a teacher, an accountant.

Your gift proclaims Now You Can to every student. Max Kelley is a first year student at Alfred Technical College in New York. He received $1,000 scholarship. Max, is the first in his family to attend college and is determined to succeed. “I feel like I’ve already accomplished a lot,” Max said. He added, “Hopefully I’ll accomplish a whole lot more with postsecondary schooling, wind up being independent… It feels great knowing that I can look at something and know I can do it.” Max is studying to be an electrician. Max knows the meaning of Now You Can.

Thank you helping Max and thousands like him. If you have questions about Scholarship America or its Dollars for Scholars, Scholarship Management Services, and ScholarShop programs, give us a call or drop us a line. If you would like to know how to volunteer, or create a lasting legacy gift, give us a call. Now You Can make a difference is the lives of so many.
