An estimated 300 people gathered at the Monterey Institute this weekend to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps, sharing stories, paying tribute to the lasting legacy of volunteers at home and abroad, and savoring food and music from the countries served by MIIS students.
MIIS Donor Challenge: Will Match with $25,000 if 250 Give in Next 25 Days
June 5, 2014
The Monterey Institute community has been presented with an exciting challenge by long time Board Member and supporter Jed Smith. If 250 alumni and friends of the Institute make a gift of any size in the next 25 days, or from June 5 to June 30, he will match these gifts with $25,000 for financial aid.
Financial aid ensures that great students from all of backgrounds can come together at the Monterey Institute. It's what makes a MIIS education possible for about 90% of our fantastic students. “I hope this match will inspire others throughout the Monterey Institute community to step up and show their support – MIIS needs us!” says the enthusiastic Jed Smith.
The challenge ends on June 30, so people are encouraged to match Jed Smith in this enthusiasm and give now at go.miis.edu/give. If you already gave this year, an additional gift made in June will still count towards the challenge. Remember any size gift counts!
