Dear WashU Annual Fund,
I appreciate your valiant efforts to secure donations for scholarships and advancements to WashU.  I myself benefited greatly from aid while I was a student there, and one day hope to make a monetary contribution to help future students at the University.

However, I am currently in medical school and up to my ears in debt, not only from the cost of my medical education but also $------+ from my time at WashU.  Thus, I respectfully ask that you cease soliciting donations from me for five years, until I am in a financial position to contribute to the Annual Fund.  This would constitute a better use of your resources and less of a waste of paper mailings.

Sincerely,
me
Class of 2010
