TFAS Alumni Give Back In Our Most Successful #GivingTuesday To Date


For one day on Dec. 1, TFAS alumni gave more than ever before in a single 24-hour period. Alumni supporters gave more than $11,000 on #GivingTuesday, breaking our increased goal of $10,000 and making this our most successful #GivingTuesday to date. Thanks to a generous matching grant from TFAS alumna and Board of Trustee member Theresa Kostrzewa (ICPES 84), your gifts were doubled and more than $20,000 was raised for student scholarships.

This was the third year that TFAS participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. We began the day with a goal to raise $5,000 for student scholarships. By mid afternoon on #GivingTuesday we were more than halfway there and increased our goal when Kostrzewa offered to double her matching gift to $10,000!

Many alumni joined the #GivingTuesday conversation by posting to social media and taking photos with our “Why I Give Back” signs as a way to encourage alumni support. Other alumni supporters called and emailed their TFAS friends to rally support around giving back to future TFAS students.

Your generosity and support on #GivingTuesday will directly impact the TFAS Class of 2016, allowing more deserving students to benefit from the TFAS experience. On behalf of former, current and future TFAS students, we say thank you for your support!
