Words of gratitude fill and color cards at Vanguard University’s 2015 “Gratitude Week” as students thank donors for their life-changing contributions.
On April 6-10, Vanguard University hosted the 2015 “Gratitude Week” to encourage students to remember the support they have received and to thank the many donors who have financially contributed to student pursuits in higher education. “One of the amazing things about Vanguard is that 95 percent of students get support from someone else’s giving,” the alumni relations coordinator, Lauren Francis, said.
Along with funds to support and empower students academically, donors have contributed to The Pit (Vanguard’s gym), the weight room, equipment for athletic teams, the Veteran’s Courtyard outside of Scott Hall, the Lyceum Theater, and of course, the new Scott Building that is opening this fall.
Francis and others were there with the cards and some refreshments. These cards are a simple way for students to express their gratitude for the generosity of donors. For distribution, Vanguard’s alumni-relations team plans to send the cards with donors’ end-of-the-year giving statements. Learn more about “Gratitude Week,” by clicking here.
