Thank A Donor Day
Students thank donors for contributing to their education on Thank A Donor Day.
November 8, 2018
On Wednesday, students were given the opportunity to win prizing, get a free t-shirt, eat some donuts, and most importantly, show their appreciation for Stetson’s many generous donors. Thank – A – Donor – Day (TADD) is a yearly event that allows students to write thank-you notes to their scholarship donors and other donors of the university. Put on by Stetson’s Donor Relations and the student philanthropy organization Green, White and YOU, the event on the Stetson Green provides students with cards, music, food, t-shirts, and the possibilities of winning other prizes. Music students were given the opportunity to participate in a special event for School of Music donors in Presser Hall.
Ashley Beigel, President of Green, White and YOU said of the event, “The purpose of Thank A Donor Day is to really just engage students and inform them about the donors of Stetson and what they do for us, and just to really appreciate it,” she said. “We also have over 300 other donors that students can write to, and it’s an amazing turn out…People learn a little bit about Stetson and philanthropy and that’s what our organization is about.”
