Join us on Wednesday, June 21 for our last day of giving this academic year. Katie Van Heest ’02 created the design for this spring’s campaign. It depicts some of the natural elements of campus, which serve as a symbolic reminder of our academic and residential experiences.
When Scripps was founded in 1926, it was one of few colleges in the West dedicated to educating women for lives of commitment and engagement. The College’s founder, newspaper entrepreneur and philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps, was a woman ahead of her time. Ms. Scripps understood the value in community and designed the College to reflect this key ideal.
96% of students live on campus, and individuals bring intellectual discussions from the classroom into their living and dining spaces. Even the Rose Garden reflects the history of community through the murals inscribed on the walls.
By making a gift of any amount, donors nurture and improve the array of experiences, which feed into the passionate involvement of students, alumnae, families, and friends. The goal on Wednesday, June 21 is to secure gifts (of any amount) from as many donors as possible. During this time, we highlight the value of community and encourage alumnae, families, and friends to support and expand the experiences and programs that directly affect the lives of current students.
Make your gift to one of our nine highlight priority areas using our Give Campus platform. Or consider making a gift to your program of choosing, adding value to the Scripps experience. All donors who have given this academic year (July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017) will receive a special tote bag, featuring Katie’s design. We are also offering unique raffle prizes, highlighting some Scripps College milestones. Please visit our website for additional details. All gifts made during our day of giving are eligible to count toward the 90th Anniversary Challenge and More Scripps campaign.
Thank you for your participation and continued support of Scripps College. Together, our collective power ensures a vibrant future for our students.
