NSHMBA Phoenix in need of donors for their Silent Auction Scholarship Fundraiser.

The Phoenix Chapter of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) is having a Scholarship Fundraiser on Thursday October 29th, 2009. Through the donations of goods and services, we will be having a silent auction with all proceeds to benefit the NSHMBA Scholarship Fund and local NSHMBA Phoenix members.

The money from this event will go towards providing scholarships to individuals that meet certain criteria including:

• Be United States Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident.
• Be of Hispanic Heritage.
• Have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
• Be current NSHMBA member.
• Be enrolled in a graduate business program in a college or university in the United States or Puerto Rico, accredited by the AACSB (AACSB International) at the time of award. More details can be found at www.nshmba.org/scholarship.

These scholarships are made possible through the various efforts of individual Chapters and the sponsorships of major corporations such as The Coca Cola Company, AXA Foundation, Proctor and Gamble, Pfizer, Verizon, Citi Bank and Cardinal Health. Last year, the NSHMBA Scholarship Fund awarded over $3 Million in scholarship assistance. The average GPA among last year’s scholarship recipients was 3.9 and three local students received scholarships.

Donors will receive a charitable receipt for tax purposes, two complimentary tickets to the annual scholarship fundraiser reception and will be acknowledged publicly for their support and contributions during the reception. Additionally, they will be recognized and promoted in the September and December issues of the NSHMBA Phoenix Chapter quarterly newsletter which has a reach of over 3000 Arizona professionals.

If you would be able to donate, it would be greatly appreciated.
