Giving Tuesday Results
On November 29, 2016, Penn State participated in Giving Tuesday, a national event to celebrate the power of giving back. Our campus campaign raised $7,200 for the Jeffries Family International Health Scholarship, and our matching donor generously honored the full match of $15,000. That means #GivingTuesday resulted in a total of $22,200 for our challenge, surpassing our original goal of $15,000! The Jeffries Scholarship provides financial support for our Global Health Scholars who can travel to seven partner sites to learn about and deliver culturally responsive care.
The world is a better place when we give more than we take. If you supported our Global Health Challenge, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you gave on Giving Tuesday, to any institution or cause you're passionate about, we also want to thank you for improving our world.
