Student Thank You Letters

Student Thank You Letters for Scholarships and Grants

Congratulations on receiving a donor-funded scholarship from Moore. This scholarship was included as part of your financial aid package and was made possible by a generous gift from a person or foundation that cares deeply about Moore and our students.

In return for your scholarship, Moore requires that you write a letter of appreciation to your benefactor. This letter is an opportunity for you to say “thank you” and to describe the impact of their generosity on your education. Hearing from you is very meaningful to donors. It allows them to get a glimpse of how their gift has made a difference in the life of a student. Many of them continue to give additional scholarship funds because they know their gifts are deeply appreciated and that they are helping deserving students realize their potential.

The College will forward your letter to your donor; DO NOT mail the letter to your donor yourself.  If you have any questions about your aid package, please contact the Financial Aid Office via email at dweaver@moore.edu.

You may access the form to submit your thank you letter on-line here.

Complete the entire form. You may wish to prepare materials before beginning, as you will be asked to:

• Determine your consent to having your information shared with donors.

• Write a message at least three paragraphs long (1,200-2,000 characters).

     - Simply say thank you and describe how the generosity of this scholarship is helping you afford your education.
     - Proofread your writing for proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar, but do not worry about formatting.
