(E) Save Croatian Language at University of Toronto
Save Croatian Language at University of Toronto URGENT!
Dragi studenti--i bivsi studenti,
I trust that all of you are doing well. I just wanted to let you know that the Croatian language program at the University of Toronto is in dire need of financial help. The program has a significant number of students studying the Croatian language but it requires a cash infusion by the end of this week in order to continue. There are severe consequences for University of Toronto students if courses are cut. Upper year students who thought that they could pursue a degree in Croatian will be unable to do so and may not graduate on time.
The program needs $10,000 per year in order to survive. Half of that has been raised thus far.
I am more than thankful for the past generous support given by membersof the of Canadian-Croatian community and other South Slavic communities. I appreciate everyone's efforts to save this worthwhile program.
Outside of the homeland, there are only three dedicated university programs to the study of Croatian. We cannot afford to lose this program at the University of Toronto.
If you can, please make a donation to this worthwhile cause. If you can only give $10, that's fine - every donation is important.
Checks may be sent to: Croatian Language Department of Slavic Languages University of Toronto 121 St. Joseph Street Toronto, Ontario M5S 1J4
Checks should be made out to "University of Toronto Croatian Language". A tax receipt will be issued for your contribution.
As the decision will be made by this Friday, it is important to send your donation right away. Please also email me and inform me of your donation and the amount of your donation, in order to ensure that your pledge will be recorded, just in case your cheque does not arrive by this Friday. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
