For One Day Only: $1=$4, Thanks to Matching from BIG Donors
The College of Charleston received $2 million to be split between Jewish life on campus and full tuition scholarships for the children of clergy and religious educators.
The Samuel R. and Regina K. Shapiro Endowment Scholarship was announced Monday with an initial $1 million pledge dedicated to a four-year scholarship program for the children of clergy and religious educators who otherwise would not be able to attend the South Carolina school. The first scholarships, available to in-state and out-of-state students, will be awarded for the Fall 2013 semester.
The Shapiros, longtime contributors to the Yaschik/Arnold Jewish Studies Program at the College of Charleston, also pledged $1 million to support student life programming, including weekly dinners, alternative spring break trips and trips to Israel.
“The Jewish Studies Program has been important to our family for a long time, and we are happy to support an initiative at the College that has impacted so many young people and community members over the years,” Regina Shapiro said in a College of Charleston statement. “Sam and I are also grateful to President Benson for enlightening us about the College’s greatest need – scholarship support – and how scholarships provide life-changing access to a College of Charleston education.”
