In addition to the Diplomat Athletic Club, part of my contribution this year is going to the Franklin & Marshall Fund for financial aid. As you may know, the College aspires to make a commitment to be "need-blind" in its admissions process, which means it would no longer look at a student's financial situation in determining whether he or she should be offered an opportunity to attend F&M. A commitment like this would be a tremendous step for the College, but it would also require the support of alumni and other sources of funding to ensure that the College can meet the needs of all admitted students. No contribution is too small - seriously. Like being a member of the team, everyone's contribution will make a difference.
