Every Aggie Counts events slated to boost Aggie Finish Line scholarship

As part of its $125 million Ignite Aggie Discovery fundraising campaign, New Mexico State University is promoting a special mini-campaign for the month of June to emphasize that ?Every Aggie Counts? when it comes to making an impact on student success.

For those alumni who have not yet found the program or scholarship they want to support at NMSU, there?s an extra incentive to make a first-time gift during Every Aggie Counts: a dollar-for-dollar match is available for gifts to the Aggie Finish Line Degree Completion Scholarship from alumni who are making their first gift to NMSU.

To honor every Aggie looking to give back, the NMSU Foundation will host a special event from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. today at Chick-fil-A on University Avenue, featuring giveaways and a chance to win a free chicken sandwich or 8-count nuggets every week for the rest of the year.

Then, on June 13, the Foundation invites El Paso-area Aggie alumni to Whole Foods, 100 Pitt St. on El Paso?s west side, from 4 to 6 p.m. for another chance to win gift cards from Whole Foods and other giveaways.

The events, which feature live radio broadcasts and other fun, will drive the momentum for Every Aggie Counts and give Las Cruces alumni a chance to meet students and support a new scholarship in time to make a difference for the fall semester.

Students at NMSU who are a semester or two away from graduation now have an additional source of support to help them bridge that financial gap and cross the finish line to receive their degree. The Aggie Finish Line Degree Completion Scholarship will support one or more undergraduate students with an award that covers the tuition gap when other financial support has been exhausted. Students must be in good academic standing at NMSU and must be within one or two semesters of completing a bachelor?s degree.

Every Aggie Counts comes in the midst of the NMSU system?s Ignite Aggie Discovery campaign, which extends through 2019. The fundraising effort, which launched its public phase in April, is the largest cash campaign in the university?s history, with a goal of adding $50 million in scholarship endowments to support student success.
