The Office of Alumni Relations held its first annual Day of Giving to raise money and work toward achieving a goal for a number of donors on Thursday, April 21, with the hashtag Twitter promotion #108ForMontclairState.
Stacy Albanese of the Office of Alumni Relations organized the first Day of Giving by honoring Montclair State University’s 108 years as an institution. This theme was reflected in the campaign to procure at least 108 donors.
Two volunteer committees, the Recent Alumni Network (RAN) and Students Today Alumni Tomorrow (STAT), were involved in the event by supporting Day of Giving via social media. Tables were also set up at the World’s Day Fair on Thursday, where volunteers and staff collected donations.
Participants could donate online or in person, and all members of the community were invited to join.
The campaign ended in success for the Office of Alumni Relations when their goal was exceeded with 352 donors and $12,000 raised for scholarships.
