A Message from Soma

In March of 2011 at age 18, Soma was diagnosed with Hereditary Gastric Carcinoma. She contacted Sy’s Fund in 2013 hoping to get help with her college tuition. Her request was granted and Sy’s Fund paid $250 of her tuition. This week we reached out to her to see if she could help us in spreading the word about the work we do. This was her response: “Thanks to Sy’s fund’s generosity, I was able to graduate from my undergrad and attend the University of Cambridge for my Masters—where I actually studied the Sociology of Fundraising. I am now the Fundraising Development Officer for a College of the University, and raise scholarship funds to support other students. Thus, Sy’s Fund—and the love, kindness, and inspiration it represents—holds a very special place in my heart. Wishing you and Sy’s Fund Family all the best this 2018!”
