The University of Utah's Annual Giving Day is this Tuesday and Wednesday March 1st and 2nd. Yes, I know that's two days and that we are a system of higher education that should be able to do math, but it is my understanding that Giving Day is 1850 minutes long rather than 1440 because the U was founded in 1850 and it is a Founder's Day Celebration.
If you are a fan of this blog, please consider making a donation. The first $2,700 in donations for Atmospheric Sciences Scholarships will be matched 1:1 by department faculty, including myself, and my colleague Ed Zipser will throw in another $5,000 if we hit that mark. To donate for scholarships, go to this link, select "Give", and choose "Atmospheric Sciences Scholarships." Donations to other college scholarship funds also appreciated!
Alternatively, you can give to our mountain meteorology fund at this link. That's a persona favorite of mine and very relevant for this blog.
If you make a donation before Giving Day, no worries, your donation will still be matched!
Thanks in advance for any contributions.
