January is a time for resolutions and good intentions. Throughout the month we are suggesting ways in which you can get in touch with old friends, shed unwanted pounds, make a difference to the lives of others and start making useful connections with the wider Warwick family.
We've already shown you how you can kick off the new year by getting in touch with old acquaintances, friends and former classmates and getting in shape. Now it's time to start thinking about how you can make a difference to others in 2010.
Resolution #3: make a difference to your University in 2010
As a Warwick graduate you know not only how important a first class education is, but also how much of an impact Warwick is making in so many fields. Why not start 2010 by taking the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of today’s students and to help shape Warwick's future?
Your support for Warwick and its students can take several forms and all donations make an important contribution. There are many projects taking place at the University which have an impact on the local, national and international stages. If you would like your donation to make a difference to current Warwick students you could direct your gift towards student hardship funds or scholarships. On the other hand, you could use your donation to support your academic department or make a contribution to the Opportunity Fund, which provides bursaries to fund student extra-curricular activities.
Alternatively, you may wish your donation to go towards supporting initiatives at Warwick which have an even wider impact. For example, you could help us with the advances that Warwick is making in vital health research or by supporting our work to improve the education of children in South Africa and Tanzania.
There are many ways for you to make a positive change in 2010. The only question that remains is what kind of difference you would like to make this year. Rest assured that whatever you do choose will make an impact on the lives of others. Please consider donating to Warwick today.
