The 2011 Class Giving Campaign—"One Ford. One Community. One Pledge." —has ended with tremendous results, raising a total of $13,903 for the Graduate and Undergraduate Annual Funds.
Nearly 76 percent of graduating MPP/MPA students participated in the campaign, and an impressive 86 percent of the BA class pledged support. The money raised also includes a generous matching gift from Jim Hudak (MPP '71), chair of the Ford School committee, and his wife, Mary. (Read more about the Hudaks' matching gift incentive in the Spring 2011 issue of State & Hill below.)
Graduate Annual Fund gifts support master's students with fellowship and internship funding, allowing students to select an internship based on their policy interests. The Undergraduate Annual Fund supports BA students in supplemental educational pursuits such as studying abroad and internships.
