Spring for Success Online Giving Day
March 20, 2019
Delta State University’s first annual Spring for Success Online Giving Day is raising money for three DSU good causes: replacing the Statesman mascot suit, replacing the bulletproof vests for our police officers, and replacing the equipment for a Virtual Dementia Tour® offered by the Social Work Department. All have been well-used, and it’s time for new ones.
Delta State University’s Foundation will match up to $2,500 raised for each project. That means each project can receive up to $5,000. Plus, the team that raises the most money on the online giving day, March 20, will receive an additional $1,000 for its project. (Additional money raised will go to the General Scholarship Fund.)
Join in on one—or more than one—of these efforts that help make Delta State stand out.
