    Dear all,

    Again, I want to thank you for all of your support and donations for the Black Lives Matter statements that ran in The New York Times.

    It was a successful fundraising effort, and we are on our way toward establishing more scholarships to enable more minority students to attend architecture school.

    Perhaps this is the time to put aside the issues over BLM and move on to the primary reason for the page, which was to generate as many scholarships as possible.

    I am including the NYT page and a link to its corresponding website. I hope you might send these attachments on to as many people as possible who may not be architects but could donate to this cause.

    Thank you again, and please see below.

    Peace,

    Jan Wampler

     

    We have a very important and challenging goal for this next stage of producing as many scholarships as possible, and we need all of your help to reach this goal. Over one million citizens will have seen the NYT page-a record number of the American population. So now I invite you to send the page that is attached below, plus the link to the website Architectsfoundation.org/hbcu, to those you know who might donate to this scholarship drive.
