Philanthropy & You
Fall 2015 Issue

Dear Alumni and Friends of UVI:

Here is your copy of the new Philanthropy & You newsletter for Fall 2015. This issue of the semiannual newsletter, published by the Institutional Advancement Component of the University of the Virgin Islands, features philanthropist that make a difference by giving a gift, whether through scholarships or endowments, that will make a significant impact for generations.  Take a look at our main feature, “Allie Petrus - Overcoming Odds and Passing It on Through Philanthropy.” Other features stories include “Endowments: Legacies That Positively Affect Future Generations,” “Hakim Potter: Education is the Pathway to a Better life,” and “Ways to Give to UVI School of Medicine.”

Vice President for Institutional Advancement Mitchell Neaves wrote in the newsletter: “In my eleven years at UVI, I have been privileged to work with many individuals and organizations who lend support to the wonderful work our faculty and students are undertaking. In this installment of Philanthropy and You, you will meet an alumnus and his wife who made a tremendous investment helping students who reside in public housing to make a successful transition to college life.”
