Donor/Student Story Idea Form

We are looking for great stories, and we hope that you will help to identify individuals to feature in our FY 21-22 Power of the Pack (Annual Report of Giving) scheduled to publish in November 2022. We are once again publishing a digital version of the Report as well as a downloadable printed version. The Report will be a combination of written stories and video content.

Editorially, we would love to know about donors whose lives are compelling and whose generosity changed the lives of students. 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.

2. As you know, the reasons and motivations 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 is 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.

Our intent is to write/ publish six stories and produce two videos. All story ideas will be considered for video production. All content will be made available to be shared with donors and beyond.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 23.

Please contact Gabe Gomez at Gabe.Gomez@unmfund.org if you have any questions.
