Through a concerted, grass roots effort by our alumni, Detroit Mercy reached our initial goal of $50,000 supporting the development of a Veterans Lounge on the McNichol’s campus. Thanks to all of you who made this vision a reality.
As we begin the plans on how to convert existing space into a comfortable meeting and study space for Detroit Mercy student veterans, we have been presented with another exciting opportunity. While we are able to complete construction on the lounge itself in phase one of our campaign, a generous donor has issued a challenge to his fellow alumni veterans to assist in jump starting phase two of our efforts.
For every dollar raised between now and May 30, 2019, this donor will match that gift dollar for dollar up to $30,000, essentially doubling every gift you make. This increased revenue will allow us to furnish this lounge with state of the art technology, comfortable furnishings and veteran friendly resources needed by our students. Let’s show our students veterans how much we appreciate and support their efforts and success.
Thanks again for your support and commitment. If you need additional information, don’t hesitate to contact Detroit Mercy’s Alumni Relations Office at 313.993.1540 or see additional information in the Spring Edition of the Spiritus Magazine.
