As the recession collides with tuition hikes, college students are stretching their budgets more than ever to pay for school. With the costs of attending a four-year educational institution on the rise, students need additional avenues to finance their education.
That’s why we’re asking you for your support in making these students’ dreams of studying public relations a reality by helping decrease some of the financial impact they face in their educational pursuit.
We are asking you to make a donation to the Public Relations Foundation of Houston (PRFH), the philanthropic arm of the Houston Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). The PRFH was formed to support the growth and development of the public relations profession by awarding scholarships to college students at regional universities. Our $3,000 annual scholarship is the largest of its kind offered by any PRSA chapter in the country, a feat made possible by everyone’s collective support.
Please consider making PRFH one of your 2010 beneficiaries. Your contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more directly helps deserving students studying communication disciplines right here in our own community. Every amount helps! And for every $25 you contribute, your name will be entered into our drawing to win $25 gift certificates to area restaurants, the theatre and more.
Giving to the PRFH is fast and easy. Visit prsahouston.org/foundation, which links to the Greater Houston Community Foundation who manages our fund. On the page’s Program Designation line, select Public Relations Foundation and indicate your contribution level. Donations are tax deductible.
Contributions made by check should be made payable to the Greater Houston Community Foundation with the ‘PRFH fund’ noted in the “for/note” section. Mail to:

The PRFH awarded its 2010/2011 $3,000 scholarship to Ally Hugg, a graduate student at the University of Texas pursuing further studies in Public Relations and Advertising. Meet Ally via our Web page: prsahouston.org/foundation. Our scholarship application for 2011/2012 is also posted on our Web site, so if you know of a PR student that qualifies, please pass this news along.
Please continue to support our efforts to promote excellence in education and serve as mentors and role models in public relations and communications. If you have any questions about PRFH, call Suzanne Lammers at (832) 661-7309 or via e-mail at email@example.com
Thank you in advance for your support!
