You should shortly be getting a letter from Indy Co-Presidents Edward Chen ’09 and Sally Rinehart ’09 inviting alums to contribute to the Indy’s annual fund drive. This year, the alums have been challenged by Indy founder Tom Stemberg ’71, who will match dollar for dollar the first $19,000 raised in the fund drive. Your contributions make it possible for the Independent to transition to a web-based revenue model while maintaining the print edition you know and presumably love. Lots of your former colleagues, including most of the coolest ones, have contributed to past annual drives and the 35th anniversary capital campaign.
I know that lots of charities are seeking your support at this season (including another institution with “Harvard” in its name): the Independent is one where your gift can make a major difference.
