Dear Families and Supporters,   

September 2009 


As we approach the eighth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, I write once again to update you on the progress of your September 11th Education Trust/WTC United Family Group and ask for your continued participation and generous support. 


As our country faces escalating difficult times—wars abroad, a slowing economy, and the continued threat of more attacks on our nation’s soil—we are hopeful that our nation will unite and rise to meet the challenges just as it did on September 11, 2001. We witness that same spirit everyday in our community whether through continued advocacy on issues like Fresh Kills or the WTC memorial or finding the strength to make it through another difficult day in the grieving process. 

 

Despite a bleak funding landscape, our organization is growing and evolving to advance our mission.  Responding to reduced fiscal resources, modest program fees will be assessed for the April portion of the September 11/Oklahoma City Exchange and annual holiday gathering.  This year, our organization completed the landmark September 11th Education Program:  A National Interdisciplinary Curriculum, the country’s first comprehensive 9/11 curriculum.  Our thanks to all of our community members who participated in and supported this historic effort.  To view the program and download content, please visit www.LearnAbout9-11.org.

 

Please make a donation today, and if possible, increase the amount of your last contribution to help us advance the 9/11 curriculum and achieve our collective goals. To make your tax deductible contribution, contribute online at www.sept11educationtrust.org and click on Make a Contribution.    Alternatively, if you are interested in gifting stocks, or other types of investments to benefit our endowment fund, please call our office at (732) 262-9600.  Click here for a printable contribution form (PDF).

On behalf of our board of trustees, we thank you in advance for your ongoing support, which ensures the advancement of the September 11th Education Program and continued delivery of services to our community members.

Together we will continue to overcome the challenges,

Wishing you renewed strength and peace as we face the 8th anniversary,
 

Patricia Reilly, Sister of Lorraine Lee
Chair, Board of Directors
