Support CambridgeCampus students by buying a piece of history

Liliana Fernandez from Argentina has been awarded a felloAnoka-Ramsey Community College Cambridge Campus Foundation is offering community members an opportunity to be part of the college’s history and support students through the Buy-a-Brick Campaign.

Last year alone more than 70 students received scholarships out of the more than 1,000 who attend the Cambridge Campus.

Here is how the Buy-a-Brick program works: People can purchase an engraved 4×8” brick with a personalized message. A $250 donation purchases one of the limited number of bricks on the outer ring of the ellipse on the East River Courtyard. A $100 donation receives a brick in the center of the ellipse on the East River Courtyard.

The engraving on the brick could be: the name of a family member, a student or alumni and year of graduation, a business name or the name of a loved one. The engraving could also be in honor of someone special such as a favorite teacher or in memorial.

To purchase a brick or learn more about the Anoka-Ramsey Community College Cambridge Campus Foundation, contact the foundation Executive Director, Marc Johnson at 763-422-6112 or [email protected]
