WithIt Launches Marvin Traub Scholarship Fund
October 16, 2012,
NEW YORK-A $10,000 gift from WithIt Co-Founder Peggy Traub is making it possible for WithIt to launch the Marvin Traub Scholarship Fund, its first-ever matching campaign for student scholarships. In order to jump start this new fund, Traub, the daughter of Marvin Traub, will match two dollars for each dollar donated, up to the first $5,000. This match effectively triples the value of each dollar donated.
WithIt is a North Carolina-based, not-for-profit network whose purpose is to encourage and develop leadership, mentoring, education and networking opportunities for professional women in the home and furnishings industries.
