Donations on international day of generosity will support Emergency Scholarship Fund
On Giving Tuesday, Norwich University’s community can support students’ pursuit of education and goal of graduation.
Giving Tuesday, launched in New York City’s 92nd Street Y in 2012 to follow Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, has become an international day of heightened generosity, when people give time or money to favorite charities and causes.
Money raised on Norwich University’s Giving Tuesday will support the Emergency Scholarship Fund, which helps students meet unforeseen financial challenges. Donors may give money here.
“The Emergency Scholarship Fund saved me my junior and senior years … it helped me stay on track to graduate and fulfill my dreams.” Dong Son Doan Tran, Norwich University junior
“Financial worry causes stress for students who do not have the financial or family support needed to cover their outstanding balance,” a Norwich Emergency Fund coordinator said in print media for Giving Tuesday. “ESF is a blessing to them and a gift that they will not forget.”
In the campaign, Norwich students hailed the fund’s help.
“Generous donors to the Emergency Scholarship Fund have helped me to focus on my studies so I can graduate on time,” Gracious Asantewaa, a sophomore nursing major from Triangle, Virginia, said.
Dong Son Doan Tran, a junior mechanical engineering major from Binh Duong, Vietnam, said, “The Emergency Scholarship Fund saved me my junior and senior years because my family had completely exhausted our resources and there was no other way for us to fund my education. The Emergency Scholarship Fund means a lot to me because it helped me stay on track to graduate and fulfill my dreams.”
