Increased Support for Webb’s Annual Giving Day


 
Webb’s second annual Giving Day was a tremendous success, with 565 donors giving over $194,000 in a 24-hour period from April 25-26 (noon to noon) to support The Webb Fund, the Alf Museum, scholarships and more.

Webb reached out to its network around the world and asked alumni, students, parents and faculty to show their support for Webb’s 24/7 learning environment, and the response was incredible. Within the first 12 hours, the campaign surpassed its goal of 405 donors.

Giving Day kicked off with 83 students giving during lunchtime, and donors from the global Webb community continued to give around the clock. Webb support extended across 12 countries and 30 states.

The success of Giving Day was made possible with the help of our dedicated volunteers. Thank you to Webb’s trustees, Alumni Council, class agents, parent, faculty and student volunteers for reaching out to their peers and encouraging them to support this campaign.
Webb hosted the second annual Thank A Donor Day on May 2, where students took time between classes to hand write thank you cards to donors who made gifts during Giving Day. Students and faculty also expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of support in our Thank You video above.

Thank you for your continued support of Webb’s Giving Day!
