Alumni, Donors, and Friends Newsletter
Hello CTY alumni, volunteers, and friends,
I am Venezia Garza, CTY Scholars ‘21 alum, and current member of the CTY Advisory Council and recently formed Alumni Leadership Committee. It’s an honor to welcome you all into the new year!
I'm excited to share that the CTY Development and Alumni Relations team is eagerly working alongside volunteers on new events and engagement opportunities to connect, reminisce, and create new CTY memories.
Whether you participated in CTY’s online classes or on-campus programs, recently graduated, or attended “a long, long time ago” (to quote Don McLean), these events and engagement opportunities offer something for everyone.
Please be on the lookout for notifications about upcoming online and in-person alumni events. I wish you a wonderful 2023 and look forward to getting together soon.
All the best,
CTY Advisory Council Member and Alumni Leadership Committee Chair
Thanking CTY’s Supporters
We're pleased to share the 2022 Report of Giving & Gratitude, acknowledging the contributions of our donors, volunteer leadership, alumni, friends, and staff members. The partnership and commitment of this community enables CTY to serve our mission to identify, develop, and support advanced learners from all backgrounds and around the world. The generosity of our supporters helps CTYers discover, experience, and achieve among peers and exceptional instructors.
$5 Million Gift for Scholarships
CTY received a $5 million gift to establish the U.P. Sircar Family Foundation Endowed Scholarship Fund. The fund will provide financial aid to students from under-resourced communities to participate in CTY programs. The U.P. Sircar Family Foundation’s goal for the fund is to help alleviate financial barriers and provide access to advanced learning, student support tools, and experiences that under-resourced students need to become tomorrow’s leaders. This gift is CTY’s largest gift since its founding in 1979.
March 14 – CTY's Annual Pi Day Celebration
Whether it conjures memories of your favorite CTY math course or everyone's favorite CTY song, “American Pie”, there's just something so CTY about Pi Day (3.14). Save the date to join fellow CTYers and celebrate CTY’s annual day of giving with a gift that will support the next generation of bright learners.
May 18 – NYC Alumni Event at the Penn Club of New York. Details are forthcoming and registration will be open soon!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Giving Tuesday campaign and helped CTY raise $6,730 to support new and existing initiatives and areas of immediate need. By choosing CTY, you are helping to develop the next generation of thinkers, dreamers, and doers.
“I believe that by supporting the CTY Impact Fund, I, and my fellow alumni, have a unique ability to help share the same opportunities for growth, education, and personal development we were so fortunate to experience, with as many kids as possible.” - Britt Power, CTY alum ’87-’89
Summer On-Campus Programs
Now enrolling! Registration is ongoing for the summer 2023 On-Campus Programs, including both in-person commuter (day) and residential (overnight on-campus) programs for students in grades 2-12 at sites across the U.S. Two sessions are available and will run from June 25 through August 11, 2023.
Asraiel Harewood (pictured left), former CTY Scholars educational advisor and current employee in the admissions office at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), recently reconnected with Arly Bencosme (pictured right), a CTY Scholars alum and first-year student at CMU. Continuing to build on their relationship from the CTY Scholars program, Asraiel is now helping to support Arly as she navigates her first year of college.
Have you recently reconnected with a fellow CTYer or instructor from your days at CTY? Share your story with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the year, CTY receives messages from students expressing appreciation for the generosity of CTY donors. Two young CTYers shared this artwork and quote:
“I am a seventh grader with an intrinsic love of learning. It’s difficult to access the courses I need to keep moving forward in my studies through school alone. When I had the opportunity to take courses through CTY, I jumped at the chance. Not only do CTY courses meet my educational goals, but also I am able to develop relationships with other students who share my interests and with whom I can be myself.”
Your gift to CTY can help provide a rewarding and challenging academic experience to qualified bright learners from diverse backgrounds.
