Thank You – Your Support Made a Difference


Last night was an incredible evening! It was wonderful to be in community with so many, and to see in real-time the number of people who made a choice to support OMA&D and our Educational Opportunity Program students through giving. As I said last night, your presence was a welcome reminder that we are not alone in our work.

Through corporate, community and campus partners, combined with your generosity, we were able to raise over $468,000!

The donations will provide financial scholarships and support to help students achieve their academic goals. OMA&D advising and other programs serve over 6,500 American Indian/Alaska Native, low-income, first-generation, underrepresented minority students and students who have experienced foster care or homelessness. Each year, that number grows, and student financial needs increase. On behalf of the Friends of the Educational Opportunity Program Board of Trustees and OMA&D, I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support of our students.

In the coming weeks, you will receive another email with photos and videos of the evening. Until then, if you haven’t yet had a chance to make a gift, there is a link at the bottom of this email where you can invest in student excellence.

With gratitude,

Rickey Hall
