|COSMOS PARENTS & FAMILIES: BE A CHAMPION FOR COSMOS!
As you may know, COSMOS is funded partially by the State of California, by program tuition, and by private support from foundations, corporations and individuals. These funds are used to provide a high quality, affordable program for all who participate. With reductions in state funding, private support is increasingly important to the success of the program.
There are a number of ways you can help COSMOS to continue offering the kind of experience your sons and daughters had this summer. One is to talk to your employers and companies about COSMOS and encourage them to support us. Many companies require that we be "introduced" by employees for possible consideration for corporate philanthropy or community sharing programs. We would very much appreciate hearing from you if you have any leads or suggestions.
Of course, we welcome your direct support as well. All donations large and small make a big difference and are tax deductible. We have an online donation button at the COSMOS statewide website, www.ucop.edu/cosmos.
We believe that students and their families are our best ambassadors and advocates. Thank you for your help in promoting and supporting COSMOS!
