Tuesday, November 29 was #GivingTuesday, or as we call it at Stevenson, #Giving2SUDay. Sandwiched between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, the day was established five years ago to encourage us to return to the thanks and giving spirit of the season. It affords us the opportunity to support the organizations and efforts that mean the most to us and is fueled by the power of our connections to each other.#Giving2SUDay was a great success! The total number of donors doubled from 2015 and over $4,000 in matching funds was contributed by Marc Bunting '91, to support Community Service and Service Learning at SU. Stevenson's success is a direct result of the generosity of our alumni, parents, faculty, staff, current students, and friends.
We send a huge "thank you" out to our #Giving2SUDay supporters and we hope that you enjoyed the givingest day of the year!
Faculty, staff, and student participants of the 2015 alternative spring break trip to New Orleans gathered in front of a home they worked to rebuild. On #Giving2SUDay, a tremendous amount of support was shown for Mission: I'm Home, a Special Interest Group at Stevenson focused on rehabilitating damaged or destroyed houses - enabling displaced families to return home.
