Donor/Student Story Idea Form

We’re looking for great stories for our FY 20-21 Report of Giving. Scheduled to publish in November 2021. There’s a big change to the Report of Giving. We are publishing a digital version of the Report as well as a printed version for limited release. Having a digital version of the Report will help us expand content and provide opportunities to create video and other multimedia.

Editorially, we would love to know about donors whose lives are compelling and whose generosity impacted students, patients, programs and/or research. We will feature these donors in two ways.

1. We will pair donors with students so that their stories of impact interconnect. The parties need not know each other, but it would be especially meaningful if they did. Please see the donor/student highlights in the last few issues of the UNMF’s Annual Report of Giving here.

2. As you know, the reasons and motivation for donors to support UNM are endless. We are looking for story ideas that speak to the spirit of philanthropy and succinctly address: “Why I give to UNM”

It’s important to receive at least one story idea from each unit to properly express the expansiveness of the Foundation and those we serve. Additionally, we need to capture an accurate representation among donors and students with respect to ethnicity, gender, etc. This too will correctly capture our deep commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 11th.
