Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day

UNH will join more than 100 educational institutions worldwide to participate in the second annual Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day organized by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The goal of the program, which will take place at institutions in the United States, England, South Africa and Australia, is to educate students about the importance of philanthropy and grow engagement opportunities on campuses.

On Friday, February 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., a table will be set up in Bartels Hall, the campus center, where students can write thank-you notes that will be sent to alumni and friends of the University. The first 300 students who participate will receive a chocolate “Charger Bar” from the Office of Advancement.

UNH relies on the philanthropic support of alumni and friends to help keep tuition costs down and provide funding for scholarships, experiential learning opportunities, research, classroom resources and campus facilities. “We are very excited about the chance for our students to show their appreciation for the opportunities that have been made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends of the University,” said Marya Neary, director of annual giving. “A simple, thank-you note from a student to a donor is one of the most meaningful ways the University can express its gratitude. Donors who give $25 or $2,500 are moved by student testimonials and by seeing that their support is truly making a difference.”
