Guilt Free Holiday Spending 12/15/2008

 

Give the gift of education this holiday season

If you’re in search of the perfect gift for the people on your list this holiday season, think of making a donation in their honor to the Spencer Educational Foundation. Your tax-deductible pledge will benefit gifted students pursuing a career in risk management or insurance.

“Spencer Educational Foundation takes much pride in the difference that we make in the lives of students and professionals in the risk management and insurance disciplines,” says Donna L. Galer, chair of Spencer Educational Foundation. “Without you, we couldn’t help as many talented risk practitioners and promising students as we do each year.”

Students like Aelon Porat, a student at Temple University who received the September 11 Memorial Scholarship in 2007, and Ashley A. Murphy, a student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe who received the XL Ian R. Heap Memorial Scholarship in 2008, have benefited from the donations from risk practitioners.

“I highly doubt that I could be where I am now without the support of Spencer Educational Foundation,” says Aelon. “Not only has the Foundation provided me with crucial financial aid, but it has given me an incentive to push my limits and excel academically.”

Ashley agrees. “I find it very encouraging to see a prestigious Foundation taking an interest and investing in the future of students across the country,” she says.
