SALT LAKE CITY -
Westminster's goal for a second annual giving day was to raise $40,000 for The Westminster Fund, which supports scholarships, academic and athletic programming and campus resources . In true Griffin spirit, the Westminster community surpassed the goal - raising more than $45,000 during the 24-hour campaign.
Faculty, staff, alums and friends of the college rallied on Feb. 17 for "$
40K in a Day," a 24-hour giving campaign to support student success. Westminster President Stephen Morgan challenged everyone to give what they could, share the campaign all day on social media and celebrate by wearing purple and gold. "$
40K in a Day" headquarters filled the Bassis Center for Student Learning with volunteers, donors, a prize wheel, food and cheering. There was plenty to celebrate.
- $45,785 total raised-a 16% increase from last year
- 353 donors participated-up 31% from last year
- 100 alumni, faculty and staff volunteered
"Thank you to all those who donated and volunteered. Scholarship funds make Westminster's transformational experience a reality for so many dedicated students. Every gift given to this effort will directly impact their lives," said Staci Carson, vice president of Institutional Advancement at Westminster.
