Today, we’re pleased to announce that donations continued well after the initial campaign last year. As many in the community may know, Victor sat on the board of the Reds Community Fund, a philanthropic arm of the Cincinnati Reds that provides outreach and support to the local community, particularly to struggling youth. In memory of Victor’s service, the Reds Community Fund and the Castellini Foundation each contributed a generous $1,500 to the fund, matching the donations from staff, faculty, and friends. As of today, the university has raised a total of $6,463.83 for the Victor Gray Memorial Scholarship Fund in support of enrollment at the Cincinnati undergraduate center.
We are proud to say that efforts are ongoing to grow Victor’s scholarship fund. The UI&U Activities Committee, which contributed $500 last year, has made the fund the beneficiary of many staff and faculty fundraisers and contests throughout the current year. The university will continue to seek external community support, as well, to sustain the fund and to increase the number of scholarships possible.
To make a donation to the Victor Gray Memorial Scholarship Fund, please contact Sara Litwiller at email@example.com or simply use the secure Online Gift Form. The university hopes to offer this award annually, but will need the support of our community to make this possible.
