The Office of Development has kicked off the fall semester with its inaugural Student Giving Campaign.
The Student Giving Campaign will allow students to give back to the University through monetary donations. The Campaign is the third component of Office of Development’s approach to grow the annual fund while creating a “culture of philanthropy” throughout the University.
In 2010, the Alumni Giving Campaign engaged PVAMU alumni, primarily through the University’s Phon-A-Thon. The event utilized students to interact with alumni, informing them of the latest campus news and events while encouraging them to make monetary donations. A year later, the Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign kicked off and provided an opportunity for employees to give back to PVAMU. The campaign closed with a 65 percent participation rate.
“The Student Giving Campaign is a way for students to get involved with helping to build a stronger PVAMU,” said Nelson Bowman, executive director of development. “We want our students to fully appreciate the importance of supporting this institution and give them an opportunity to play a role in shaping its future.”
The Campaign is an on-going initiative. For more information, visit the webpage of the Office of Development.
