Join Us for the Winter Day of Giving on February 13, 2017
When Ellen Browning Scripps founded Scripps College in 1926, she wanted more for women, more for humanity, and more for the world. Ninety years later, Scripps continues to inspire students to develop their curiosity, intellect, and talents through active participation in a community of scholars. As graduates, you give back to society through your lives of leadership, service, integrity, and creativity.
On February 13, join alumnae in giving back to the College that changed your life so it can continue to change the lives of Scripps students for the next 90 years, and beyond. Scripps is hosting this winter Day of Giving for you to show your love for your alma mater by making a gift in time for Valentine’s Day. All gifts go toward supporting internships, scholarships, campus enhancement, the recruitment and retention of faculty, CMS athletics, student clubs and services, and many other critical endeavors at Scripps as part of the More Scripps campaign.
It’s not the dollar amount that matters â€“ every gift helps support the College.
This is the time to show your collective power as Scripps alumnae.
For alumnae in the Classes of 1990 to 2016, your gift also counts toward the 90th Anniversary Challenge. When your graduating class reaches 90 donors, an alumna challenger will make a gift of $10,000 to the College on behalf of your class.
Why do you give?
In their own words, Scripps alumnae share why they give their time, talent, and treasure to the College in a video created by student Ella Harris ’20.
Find out how you can get involved or get more involved with Scripps by connecting with the
Scripps Community Network to see regional and campus volunteer opportunities.
Check back on February 15 to see the results of your collective power!
We will share the final tally on the Scripps Community Network.
