Thank you so much to everyone who made a gift to UMBC and our awesome student projects on #GivingTuesday! It was an incredible day for philanthropy–both throughout Baltimore and across the country–and we are proud to have been a part of it. We already knew that Retrievers are some of the best and most loyal folks, but you proved it all over again with your support on December 3.
Here’s a quick update on our featured #GivingTuesday projects:
Thanks to you, Engineers Without Borders (EWB) has raised $1,535 toward their January trip to Isongo, Kenya. They still need to raise a bit more, but we’ve made a good start. We hope you’ll help us spread the word and continue to gather support for EWB.
Success! Thanks to your support, the Down and Dirty Dawg Band not only reached their goal of $2,500, but have exceeded it by over $300 (via online and offline donations). Additionally, their CD, “Black & Gold” is now available for purchase online.
So far, you’ve helped us raise $500 toward new projects and initiatives for our LGBTQ students. With that money, UMBC will be able to fund a few workshops or guest lectures on campus. It’s a great start, and we hope to raise more in the coming months.
