In April, Missouri S&T students, faculty and staff will be immersed in opportunity to educate and engage the student body about the idea of giving to others.
Philanthropy Month will be a celebration of giving, growth, pride, progress and philanthropic spirit. Throughout the month Student Emergency Fund (Miner Wellness), Students Today Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) and Blue Key, will work to raise awareness by educating and engaging students, faculty and staff about the impact of philanthropy. These S&T organizations will also be promoting philanthropic events on campus, including philanthropy information booths, Whiteboard Wednesdays (encouraging students, faculty and staff to share what they love about S&T), a philanthropy themed scavenger hunt, topped off by a philanthropy fair we call “Philanthropalozza.”
Throughout the month funds raised will go to the S&T Student Emergency Fund. This fund will assist S&T students by providing financial support with unexpected emergency expenses. Students sometimes have unforeseen circumstances that greatly impact their lives. The fund allows students to meet their needs and continue their education.
Tuesdays and Thursdays during April from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Show your pride: Every Tuesday and Thursday, stop by the booth at the Havener Center or outside the library for games, prizes, snacks and free gear!
