Dear HONOREE'S FIRST AND LAST NAME,
It is my pleasure to inform you that STUDENT'S FIRST AND LAST NAME and Family have made a generous donation in your honor to the Scarsdale High School PTA Scholarship Fund for College.
The money collected by the Scholarship Fund directly aids Scarsdale's graduating seniors who need financial assistance for college. We know from feedback we have received over the years that these freshman year grants have changed people's lives.
We are fortunate in this community to have people who understand that there are students here who need assistance to attend college. As you know, this “Gift of Education” will have a very real impact on the lives of Scarsdale seniors who will receive tuition grants for college.
The Scarsdale High School PTA Scholarship Fund Grant Committee thanks the STUDENT'S LAST NAME Family for donating, and we thank you as well for inspiring them to do so.
