Donate to Doris Gregory Scholarship Fund
#GivingTuesday is a global movement to encourage people to contribute to their communities. Please consider making a donation today to the Doris Gregory Scholarship Fund, which supports students who are currently studying journalism in New Mexico universities. Since NMPW’s normal path to refurbish the Fund–the silent auction–was cancelled this year and will not take place in 2021 due to the pandemic.
Consider joining the following individuals who have already contributed to the campaign:
- Anne Hillerman
- Carol Kreis
- Damien Willis
- Denise Tessier
- Loretta Hall
- Mike Gallagher
- Marilyn Ward
- Patricia Conoway
- Robert Flinkman
- Robert Kidera
- Sharon Niederman
- Sherri Burr
You may also send a check made out to New Mexico Press Women to NMPW Treasurer Loretta Hall, 3219 El Toboso Drive, N.W., Albuquerque NM 87104.
NMPW’s goal is to raise $1500 to support two scholarships. Your donation to New Mexico Press Women’s scholarship fund will help provide scholarships for students majoring in print journalism, broadcast, photojournalism, public relations, or advertising at a New Mexico college or university. They appreciate your support!
Have you renewed your membership in NMPW/NFPW yet? If not, it’s time! Why? For one, the amazing conference at Ghost Ranch is rapidly approaching and you get the best rate as a member who registers before the early bird opportunity slips away.
Speaking of conferences, the NFPW conference will be in Anchorage, Alaska, this September and who wants to miss an opportunity to go north to Alaska? Also, it is time to enter the communications contest so you can add to your resume and get more bragging rights.
Think of all the educational and networking opportunities membership affords you, plus discounted libel insurance, national job bank, and much, much more. Membership in our organization is an investment in yourself professionally.
