Carnegie Mellon University has selected Media Logic to help promote "Fuel the Fire," a key component of the university's $1 billion Inspire Innovation campaign. The partnership will focus on efforts to motivate alumni and parents to support scholarships, fellowships and other giving opportunities that directly benefit students and help Carnegie Mellon continue to attract the best and brightest.
"We selected Media Logic specifically for their expertise in higher education communications and fundraising, as well as their successful track record in customer relationship marketing," said David Bohan, associate vice president and campaign executive director, Carnegie Mellon.
Through Fuel the Fire, Carnegie Mellon alumni, parents and friends have the opportunity to hear student stories, share in their dreams and learn more about the impact that philanthropic support can make. The students featured in this effort are real Carnegie Mellon students, many of whom have already benefited from donor support.
"We're excited to be working with Carnegie Mellon as a marketing partner on this initiative," said David M. Schultz, president of Media Logic. "This campaign will help provide the university with resources critical to fueling a whole new generation of ideas and innovation - and create future industry and thought leaders."
