Stop Feeding the Silver Spoons

We recently had an extraordinarily humbling and rewarding experience. We sat down for lunch with students who told us how dramatically we had transformed their lives. Now that's impact.

Let us give you the wisest advice you'll ever receive regarding donations to higher education:

We invite you to consider a gift to our rural upstate New York alma mater, SUNY Canton (State University of New York at Canton). You'll be moved by the down-to-earth students and professors whose lives you will affect. And if you have an experience like ours, you might just realize that the person with the most rewarding you. Give to SUNY Canton now. You will thank us later.

Don't waste your money on rich schools with huge endowments. The subject was recently featured in an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education entitled, "Why Give to a College That Already Has Enough?" (7/6/07). Your donation will have little impact at a college that has stockpiled hundreds of millions or even billions.Ron Woodcock
