Give Back to Your College
We don’t want [access to fewer financial opportunities] to stand in the way of living out the full potential of what was the greatest four years of a learning experience for so many of us.
Contributing to student scholarships means helping [students] succeed on the path to life-changing degrees — and investing in our community, where many of them will pursue their careers and raise their families.
I give back so I can continue to open opportunities to generations of students — my passion is to invest in the future through education.
Opportunity lifts the recipient, but it also lifts the entire generation. I hope this [Notarantonio Endowed Nursing] scholarship provides the net for someone to take that leap into a brighter future.
Establishing the D’Amato-Kubiet Family Endowed Scholarship makes my soul feel good. It is a joy and a privilege to give students the opportunity to become professional nurses.
We are evolving toward a better future, and with our donations, UCF can continue our shared mission to impact positive change and empowerment through knowledge and opportunity.
