PGSF Announces 2 X 4 "Building for the Future" Campaign

Tuesday, May 06, 2003

Press release from the issuing company

Pittsburgh, Pa., May 6, 2003— The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) announces a new annual scholarship campaign designed for companies to develop their own individual scholarships. The 2 x 4 scholarship program may be designated for children of employees, students in the community, and colleges in their area. The 2 x 4 “Building for the Future” campaign is planned for two (or more) scholarships for a contract period of four years. For $3,300 a year two students can receive significant scholarship assistance. The four-year period will insure that the students can complete their studies. “In these day of zero-based budgeting, it is important to offer a flexible scholarship program that can benefit the local graphic arts community,” says Ted Ringman, vice president of development for PGSF. “We currently provide over 200 scholarships. However over 80% of the scholarship applicants are turned down due to lack of funds. The 2 x 4 scholarship allows donors to design a program that best fits their requirements. For an investment of $3,300 the donor can specify the restrictions and PGSF will do the rest.” For information regarding tax-deductible contributions or establishing a scholarship through PGSF, the only national scholarship effort for the printing industry, please contact Ted Ringman, by phoning 800/910-GATF extension 314, or by directly emailing him at tringman@gatf.org. PGSF is a nonprofit organization. For information on PGSF or scholarship applications, contact Bernadine Eckert, PGSF administrator, at 200 Deer Run Road, Sewickley, PA 15143-2600, telephone 412-741-6860, ext. 309, fax 412-741-2311, or email her at beckert@gatf.org.
