Spring for Success 2020
DSU’s Spring for Success Online Giving Day
Delta State’s 2nd annual Spring for Success online giving day took place on March 19, 2020. Thank you to all those who gave to one or more of these worthwhile microgrants. Although none met the goal of raising $2,500 apiece in 24 hours, these valuable campus causes took a big step forward through the donors who generously contributed to them, and the money will be put to good use for these projects!
(Each project that met the goal would have received an additional $2,500 from the DSU Foundation, and the project that raised the most money above the $2,500 threshold would have earned an additional $1,000—for a grand total of $6,000. Additional money raised by each project above the $2,500 threshold would have gone the General Scholarship Fund.)
