On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, we celebrate #GivingTuesday. This is a global day of gratitude, fueled by the influence of social media. Widely celebrated the Tuesday following U.S. holidays and promotions, such as Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday recognizes the value in charity and community. As the end-of-the-year approaches, we want to express our own gratitude for you and others who have engaged with our Scripps community.
We know that Scripps isn’t your only choice when it comes to making a difference. Thank you for your contributions to and your engagements with the Scripps community. Today, we want to express our gratitude and appreciation of you. Your gifts, including the gift of time, empower the next generation of women leaders to make a difference and give back to the world. With your support, we have been able to:
- Provide valuable internship opportunities to over 80% of Scripps students;
- Recruit the best-and-brightest faculty members to serve the Scripps community;
- Define new scholarships and funds for students who may need financial support;
- Develop offices centered around leadership, justice, and inclusion.
We hope you continue showing your support of the Scripps community by liking our Facebook pages and using the #GivingTuesday hashtag when you post.
Now is a better time than ever to reinforce the value of an exceptional, higher education. If you are interested in making a financial gift, you can visit our giving page here. Thank you for being a part of the Scripps experience.
