Students Learn about Philanthropy at Outdoor Event

Posted on November 2nd, 2010 by

On November 1st, the Gustavus Annual Fund hosted an outdoor event for current students to learn the important role of philanthropy in maintaining an institution like Gustavus.  Outside of the Campus Center, there was music, pumpkin throwing, hotdog eating, and piggy banks!  Fun contests and trivia informed a steady crowd of students about all the things students use daily that are provided by support to the Annual Fund.  This event was one of three in a series drawing awareness and garnering support for the Annual Fund.  The Current Student Philanthropy program, initiated this year, is an effort to educate students and grow a culture of giving that becomes an integral part of what it means to be a Gustie.
