Philanthropy Month

This April, Missouri S&T students, faculty and staff will be immersed in opportunity to educate and engage the student body about the idea of giving to others.

Philanthropy Month will be a celebration of giving, growth, pride, progress and philanthropic spirit. Throughout the month, the Student Emergency Fund (Counseling Services), Students Today Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) and Blue Key, will work to raise awareness by educating and engaging students, faculty and staff about the impact of philanthropy. These S&T organizations will also be promoting philanthropic events on campus, including philanthropy information booths, Whiteboard Wednesdays (encouraging students, faculty and staff to share what they love about S&T), a philanthropy themed scavenger hunt, topped off by “Philanthropalooza,” (formerly known as the Philanthropy Fair).

Throughout the month of April, funds raised through our crowdfunding page will go to the Student Emergency Fund. This fund, administered by counseling services, assists S&T students by providing financial support with unexpected emergency expenses. Students sometimes have unforeseen circumstances that greatly impact their lives. The fund allows students to meet their needs and continue their education.
