Watch this new recap video that follows the microgrant money that was raised at Delta State University’s inaugural Spring for Success online giving day on March 20, 2019.
That’s when three projects set about raising $2,500 apiece in 24 hours for worthy campus causes: replacing the Statesman mascot suit, bulletproof vests for university police officers, and equipment for a Virtual Dementia® Tour. Each project that met the goal would receive an additional $2,500 from the DSU Foundation. All projects did. The project that raised the most money earned an additional $1,000—for a grand total of $6,000—in this case, to replace the Statesman mascot suit. Additional money raised went to the General Scholarship Fund.
The second annual Spring for Success online giving day will take place on March 19, 2020. The same goals and rules apply for these microgrants. Read More
