Although I no longer serve on the COMMON Education Foundation (CEF)
board, I am a strong advocate for it's mission.
With the end of the year approaching, now is the perfect time to make
your tax deductible contributions to non-profit organizations. As you
are considering organizations to support, please look to the COMMON
Education Foundation. Each year CEF awards scholarships to professors,
students, and community members through the Al Barsa Memorial
Scholarship, Registration Scholarship, Volunteer Memorial Scholarship,
Tuition Reimbursement Scholarship, John Earl Speaker Scholarship, and
our Student Initiative including the Student Innovation Award.
Over $35,000 in scholarships was awarded in 2014 alone. It would not be
possible for us to do this without the continued support of the
community through your generous donations!
If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation, you can mail
a check made out to the COMMON Education Foundation to
1556 Ashbury Place
Eagan MN 55122-1222
or you can pay with a credit card by visiting
and clicking on "Give Now".
Thank you in advance for any support you can offer!
