They say money talks. In the case of UTMB’s abbreviated comprehensive fundraising campaign, we should listen. Why? Because there are almost $250 Million dollars on the table right now from smart and experienced people, foundations, businesses and others who have taken a hard look at us, at our institution and the great work we do, and said “wow.” And they’ve reached for their checkbooks to help us continue doing these great things, or do them even better.
That was the message I took away from the community forum on March 19. If you missed it, you can watch it online and get details on those dollars, where they came from and where they are going: http://www.utmb.edu/communityforum/default.asp
