We are just 10 days away from Griffins Give Day, when the MMC community comes together for 24 hours of giving to support our squad, current and future! I spoke with Carly S. from the Institutional Advancement office to get the inside scoop.
WHAT IS IT?: GGD is an annual day of giving, when the community is encouraged to support MMC with donations of any size. There are multiple ways to give including donating online or IRL in the Hewitt Gallery, making purchases with coordinated sponsors, and participating in the fun by entering to win raffle prizes and coming to the after party!
10/08 Make a purchase at CHIPOTLE (1153 THIRD AVE) between 4-8pm and a portion of the proceeds goes to #griffinsgiveday
10/09 Make a purchase at PANDA EXPRESS (1277 1st Avenue) between 4-8pm and a portion of the proceeds goes to #griffinsgiveday
10/10 Come to the Hewitt Gallery for your chance to win prizes!
WHAT DOES GGD MEAN TO YOU?
Institutional Advancement plans the annual event, and my job is to get the word out around campus and on social media. Last year over 40k was raised in just 24 hours. Our hope is that everyone who is able to give- and who values what MMC has provided them/the continued mission- participates! Any size donation is wonderful. The money goes to keeping the buildings safe and beautiful, scholarships that ensure great students of diverse backgrounds get to campus (and find success!), and updating technology so students are prepared for the world in this evolving era.
With so many ways to give, participation is a breeze! together we can make sure that this #griffinsgiveday is the most successful yet!
