Our goal is to raise $200,000 to endow the Carrie fellowship, and we're very pleased to announce that we are 60% of the way there. Thanks to the generosity of alumni and of the many people whose lives Carrie touched, PiA has been able to raise $120,000 dollars to date. Support of the Carrie Fellowship has poured in across countries and across generations: among the most poignant--a small donation from the parents of a PiA fellow who wrote: "Carrie was such an inspiration to our son and changed his life in such important ways." The Fund is anchored by the generosity of two "original PiA families" who gave leadership gifts of $25,000 each. We thank all of you for your generosity in helping us create a living memorial inspired by Carrie’s legendary spirit of public service, adventure and passion.
We hope that you will agree that supporting a talented, young PiA-er in pursuing his/her inspiration in Asia is one of the most fitting tributes we can pay to a woman who was the ultimate champion of young people’s potential to transform and be transformed by Asia--just as her spirit and zest for life transformed our lives and our organization. We look forward to sending the first Carrie Fellow to Asia this summer and we hope you will consider helping us do so by sending a contribution in the form of a check to "Princeton in Asia -- Carrie Tribute" to Princeton in Asia, 194 Nassau St. Suite 212, Princeton, NJ 08542 . Thank you for your support.
