Congratulations to the voyage of Fall 2005 for having the most donors of any voyage, and the voyagers of Spring 1984 for raising the most funds for SAS!

A special thank you to Lisa Braun-Glazer and Jeff Glazer, Chair of the Advancement Committee and ISE Trustee, who generously matched any gift of $1,000 or more, one-for-one, up to $100,000.

We would also like to thank the Alumni Association Board of Directors (AABOD) for generously creating an “Early Bird Challenge” on the Day of Giving. The AABOD matched every gift during the first hour of giving, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000.

If you made a gift, you may still have an opportunity to double that gift without spending a dollar more. Many companies will match their employees’ gifts to nonprofit organizations like Semester at Sea.

  • You may be able to double or triple your gift if you or your spouse works for a company that matches gifts to non-profit organizations.
  • Retired employees often qualify for matching gifts programs.
  • You will receive credit for the total sum of the gift.
  • To find out if your employer offers a matching gifts program, contact your company‚Äôs human resources office. The Institute for Shipboard Education‚Äôs tax identification number (EIN) is 95-3075415.

On behalf of all those who benefit from your generosity, we thank you again for your support!

P.S. If you happened to miss out on the Day of Giving, it isn’t too late to give! The SAS fiscal year ends May 31, so you still have time to make a gift for this year: semesterseadev.wpengine.com/give
