Writing a Thank You Note

A thank you note is typical when receiving some sort of funding and undergraduate research support is no different. Please review this guide on how "Expressing Gratitude to a Donor" to help you in crafting your thank you note. This is important to inform the donor of what you were able to accomplish with their gift to help encourage them to see value in their donation. The OUR has cards you may use for your thank you note.
