Support the Educational Opportunities Program

"We need your support in order to continue meeting the needs of our students."

A letter from our Director:

Dear Supporter:

Maritza Martinez, MSWWe are requesting your financial support for use towards various programming (e.g., trips and workshops), provisions (e.g., book stipend and emergency needs), and equipment deficiencies (e.g., technology). Our programs are largely funded via NYS and federal appropriations which during times of financial distress can be more vulnerable to cutbacks.

On behalf of the Office of Academic Support Services, we would like to thank those of you who have contributed over the years. Your financial support has been key to serving our mission of retention and graduation for all students.

To assist us in making our programs a continued success, we ask that you consider making a gift at this time. Your check should be made payable to the "University at Albany Foundation"; please enter the notation "EOP Discretionary Fund" in the memo section. Also, complete the enclosed card. Return the card to us at University Library, Room 94. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at (518) 442-5180. The contribution is tax deductible as provided by law. We appreciate any amount.

Sincerely yours, 

Maritza Martinez, MSW
