Jody Olsen RPCV Scholarship A Project of Named Scholarships & Endowments

How can you help?
When you make a gift of any size to The Jody Olsen Scholarship for RPCV's at UM SSW, the University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation, Inc. (UMBF) will match your donation 50 cents on the dollar. The goal of our fundraising is to meet the $25,000 minimum threshold to establish this scholarship. UM SSW has already received $10,000 in pledges towards this goal. Therefore, if we can raise $6,666 from alumni and friends with similar philanthropic attitudes, UMBF's matching funds will allow us to reach the $25,000 goal.
