Philanthopy Week

Did you know? Donors make a difference!

Mount Union’s third annual Philanthropy Week will take place November 9-13, 2020. Hosted by The Mount Union Fund, Philanthropy Week celebrates the generosity of Mount Union donors, while building awareness and a culture of philanthropy on campus.

Please join us for a week of virtual themed days and fun activities to celebrate the impact of our donors – including alumni, parents, employees, students, and friends – and to highlight the importance of “paying it forward” as part of the greater Mount Union community.

Join the conversation and follow along on Mount Union’s social media using #UMUGivesThanks.

Philanthropy Week 2020

  1. Monday, November 9 | Pinned and Proud

    Scholarships make a difference! Show your pride as an endowed scholarship recipient and/or beneficiary of OFIC, President’s Rescue Fund, or COVID-19 Student Relief support and thank donors for making your Mount experience possible. Post a photo wearing your scholarship pin and share why you are proud to be a Raider, using #UMUGivesThanks, to possibly win a prize!

  2. Tuesday, November 10 | Donor "Presents" Day

    Experience our donors’ presence on campus through their gifts – or “presents” – to support your education! Acknowledge and celebrate our donors by looking for purple bows throughout campus designating the many areas supported by your donor family.  Post a photo of your favorite “present” on campus using #UMUGivesThanks to possibly win a prize!

  3. Wednesday, November 11 | Why Give Wednesday

    Students can be donors, too! Today, we recognize current students who give back to support their fellow Raiders’ Mount Union experience.  Join us @universityofmountunion as we highlight the many reasons why students choose to give back to The Mount Union Fund.

  4. Thursday, November 12 | Thank a Donor Day!

    Donors make a difference! Join fellow students in submitting “Thank You” messages to our amazing Mount Union donors for their support for your Mount Union education. BONUS: You could help win a $500 prize for the student organization of your choice. 

  5. Friday, November 13 | Faculty and Staff Appreciation!

    We are in this together! Today, we recognize the hundreds of faculty and staff members who give back to directly support  your Mount Union experience. Look for an employee wearing their Mount Union Fund t-shirt and say, “Thank You!”
