Tips on Thanking the Donor
California State University, East Bay is very fortunate to have many generous
scholarship donors, and we want to ensure that our donors know how much their support is
appreciated by everyone in the College. Donors appreciate hearing from their recipients and are
truly interested in knowing of your interests and your progress. The reason most scholarships are
created is the desire by donors to provide meaningful assistance to students. Before you write
your thank you letter, review the following three questions that many donors ask; then consider
the guiding questions to shape your response.
Some campus scholarships do require you to upload a thank you letter to the donor. When you accept the scholarship with AcademicWorks, the system will prompt you with a Post-Acceptance to do item to upload a signed thank you letter.
