Today, UCMeP’s new Philanthropy wing (UCMePP) announced the start of a very special philanthropic opportunity. Please help spread the word by sending out the following message to anyone you think might be interested:
Dear [Name Here}
On behalf of UC Movement for Efficient Privatization-Philanthropy (UCMePP), I am thrilled to announce a very special philanthropic project we here at UCMeP have been working hard to organize: the Adopt-a-Regent Campaign (ARC).
Despite our probable differences in opinion over the direction in which President Yudof and the UC Regents are masterfully steering the University of California, I think we can agree on at least one thing: during these tough economic times, no one is taking a bigger hit than our hardworking public servants.
Something needs to be done.
That’s why we here at UCMeP are taking action. And so, in an effort to help ease the troubles of California’s 26 most under-appreciated and under-valued public employees, UCMeP is proud to announce the start of its Adopt-a-Regent Campaign (ARC); a long-term philanthropic project that we hope will raise funds to support our struggling community of dedicated administrators and overlords at the University of California: the UC Board of Regents.
You are likely wondering, this philanthropic campaign sounds great, how can I get involved?
Well, that’s easy. There are three simple ways to show your support :
1. Help coordinate a visit by UCMeP representatives to your class, section, meeting, or other UC Berkeley event. UCMeP is currently looking for opportunities to give short five-minute (or less) presentations on the Adopt-a-Regent-Campaign at UC Berkeley. In these brief presentations, we will offer short background information on the UC Regents, followed by a pitch for the Adopt-a-Regent Campaign, and UCMeP’s upcoming UC-wide “Buy-in” on September 24, 2009 (in opposition to the planned faculty walk-out). If you would like a representative from UCMeP to come give a very short presentation on the UC Regents and the Adopt-a-Regent Campaign, please email us atUCMePberkeley@gmail.com.
2. Donate to the Adopt-a-Regent-Campaign! Please feel free to mail cash or check directly to the UC Regents at:
Office of the Secretary of the Regents
1111 Franklin Street, 12th Floor
Oakland, Ca 94607
***Make checks payable to “UC Board of Regents” and include as a memo: “UCMeP’s Adopt-a-Regent Campaign”
3. Get involved with UCMeP! Contact us if you are interested in learning more about or getting involved with either ARC or future UCMeP projects!
We look forward to your help raising support for this very worthy cause. Together we can make President Yudof and the UC Board of Regents’ dream of privatizing the nation’s best public university a reality!
