In honor of Giving Tuesday, please take this opportunity to support the Adrienne Balsover Sustainability Scholarship Fund to establish an endowed scholarship program for incoming graduate students studying sustainable planning in the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program in the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado Denver. The fund will be used to recruit the best and brightest students of diverse backgrounds to the planning profession to study sustainable planning at CU Denver. As many of you know, I teach full-time in the MURP program and your contribution to this scholarship fund will help us continue to bring top-notch students to Denver to study urban planning and to improve the Denver region through their passion and enthusiasm for building strong sustainable communities.
Last year, a $10,000 gift from the Golden Rule Foundation established the fund, and through the end of 2014 the Foundation has offered to match gifts for the scholarship to help meet a goal of $25,000 to endow the scholarship so that it can benefit MURP students in perpetuity. With the fund balance now around $15,000, we need to raise only $5,000 between now and December 31 to meet this goal!
