#WhitecapsGivingDay is Saturday, September 18!
Are you ready to Catch the Wave?
On Saturday, September 18, we will celebrate the day Galveston College first opened its doors in 1967. Through emails and social media posts, we’ll have fun as a virtual community and also invite our friends and alumni to support a specific area of the college with a donation during different hours of the day.
When the invite goes out, there will be a matching gift opportunity for a period of time. When a giving challenge is met – for example, if we raise $250 in one hour for nursing – the matching gift donors’ contribution will be “unlocked” to support the college. A $250 gift will turn into $500. Thank you in advance to our matching gift donors!
The following giving challenges are scheduled throughout the day:
- Universal Access+ Scholarship Giving Challenge – 11 a.m.
- Universal Access Scholarship Giving Challenge – 3 p.m.
- Nursing Giving Challenge – 6 p.m.
Donors will be recognized online as gifts are received. All gifts – no matter the amount – make a difference.
Drawings will also occur throughout the day. (Anyone who has donated “day of” prior to a particular drawing will be automatically entered.)
Alumni are encouraged to officially join the Galveston College Alumni Association in honor of this day by filling out an easy online form. All new members will receive a car decal created especially for Galveston College Alumni Association 2021 Whitecaps. You’ll want to join so you hear about our upcoming Alumni Association events in 2021-2022.
