Thanking Your Scholarship Donor
As part of your acceptance of a CSN Foundation scholarship please write a thank you letter to your scholarship donor to thank them for their support. The Foundation will collect your thank you letter and email it to your donor. Our donors love receiving thank you letters from their scholarship recipients!

The Importance of Thanking Your Donor

Thank you letters let the donor know you care! CSN Foundation donors are alumni, community organizations, Foundations, and local businesses that have a passion for investing in CSN students and the Las Vegas community. Thank you letters help show the donor their gift is appreciated and reminds them why they chose to give to CSN.
