SHOUP-TASTIC UPDATE: Shoups Keep Matching 2-to-1!

May 22, 2015

We just had amazing news from Don and Pat Shoup!

Even though we've hit our goal, they've agreed to continue matching ALL DONATIONS 2-to-1 that are received by May 30, 2015, the date of the retirement celebration!

This is fantastic news, and means even more funding for future urban planning students focused on transportation.

Please forward this news to your friends and colleagues -- we want to do everything we can to honor the Shoups!

And don't forget -- if you haven't already, make sure you RSVP for the Urban Planning Department celebration on May 30. All donations of $100 or more ($50 for recent graduates) receive a complimentary ticket to the party of the year!

Thanks for your support, and we'll see you on May 30!
