Hope from sadness: Loreto Godoy Memorial Fellowship (needs $5K more to become permanently endowed)
Dear Ecology community,
Our dreams for a permanently endowed Loreto Godoy Memorial Fellowship are nearly realized.
This fellowship is intended to be awarded regularly to UC Davis graduate students who exemplify Loreto's ideals. Loreto was a PhD candidate in the Ecology Graduate group, brilliant scientist, a loving mother of two little girls, Chilean, veterinarian, and all-around wonderful sunny person.
In order to help us reach our goal of endowing the fellowship and having a lasting legacy of Loreto's wonderful and generous life, my husband Bruce and I are making another gift of $1000 to help inspire others to donate (any size donation is very welcome).
With this donation and that of a new anonymous donor, the fund is now at $20,000. It needs to reach $25,000 to be permanently endowed by UC Davis for a lasting legacy to Loreto's memory.
Please consider joining us to reach this goal!
Also - please feel free to share this email so that others can get involved.
