Thank you, thank you, thank you!

November 06, 2017

Thank you! Although this crowdfunding campaign has come to an end, the Sobel family and Sobel scholarship recipients will never forget your generosity. You helped us raise $33,355 and helped make this the most successful crowdfunding campaign in University of Maryland history! Your donation will make a difference in the lives of Terp students for decades to come. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Most Successful Crowdfunding Campaign!

November 02, 2017

We did it! We've raised $32,600 and have been crowned the most successful crowdfunding campaign in University of Maryland history! Thank you all so much for your generous donations, which will help students with financial need fulfill their dreams of becoming doctors for years to come. We've still got 4 days to go, so keep asking your friends and family to give before this campaign ends!

Made Our Stretch Goal, Still Aiming Higher!

October 24, 2017

Thank you for helping us surpass our stretch goal of $20,000! Thanks to your generosity, some of the brightest pre-med students at Maryland with the greatest financial need will receive even more scholarship support! Your donation will truly make a difference in these students' lives.

P.S. We still have the top crowdfunding campaign in our sights--we have 13 more days to raise $10,426 to become the most lucrative crowdfunding campaign at Maryland! We can do it! #GoTerps

Almost to $20,000, Still 17 Days to Go!

October 20, 2017

In the spirit of friendly competition, we wanted you to know that this is already the 8th most lucrative LaunchUMD crowdfunding campaign ever! The question is...can we raise the MOST money and surpass the #1 campaign that raised $30,550?

We think so! But we need your help! We have 17 days to raise another $11,701 for the Mark Sobel Jr. Memorial Scholarship. Please share this link with your friends, family and fellow Terps! All of the funds raised by this campaign directly benefit students at the University of Maryland.

Halfway There!

October 08, 2017

We're just three days into our 30-day campaign and we've already surpassed our original $10,000 goal and we're halfway toward our new stretch goal of $20,000! Thanks to everyone who has generously donated so far. Please keep sharing the link with your friends and family so we can raise more money for deserving Terp students!

Amazing First Day!

October 06, 2017

Terps are the best! Thanks to the generous support of so many Terps, we have raised $8,400 for the Mark Sobel Jr. Endowed Scholarship Fund in the first 12 hours of our campaign! Our original goal for this 30-day campaign was to raise $10,000, but we've increased our goal to $20,000, thanks to the outpouring of support today. To everyone who has donated to the campaign so far and shared it with their friends and family, THANK YOU!
