The University of Michigan held its first 24-hour day of giving, Giving Blueday, on Giving Tuesday (Dec. 2, 2014). It invited alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, patients and their families, and fans worldwide to make donations to any area of the university they wanted to support.
The second annual Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day (#studentengageday), organized by CASE ASAP, is almost here. Student philanthropy groups around the world are gearing up for a day—or in some cases, a week—of thank-a-thons, tag days and other ways in which they’re showing appreciation for donors. Here’s why they’re participating.
It was my pleasure to attend the CASE ASAP 40th Annual Network Convention in New Orleans, La., last week. What a conference! Very much by the students, for the students—attendees and speakers at the the convention brought boundless enthusiasm to all things student advancement.
