See the difference a donation makes
Tag Day offers an opportunity to see the impact donors and community partners have on the King’s campus. The King’s Alumni and Development team will post large green tags around campus to draw attention to the array of projects and spaces made possible through donations from alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents and friends.
Some of the campus locations to be tagged will include the John and Frances Vitali Student Lounge, the Marilyn Mason Seminar Room, the Arthur and Sonia Labatt Room, and the Andy and Helen Spriet Learning Commons.
“It is safe to say that without the support of donors and community partners, the King’s University College campus would look much different,” says Kim Malcolm, Manager of Development. “Tags are posted around campus to identify specific places, and things that donors have funded.”
Tag Day began at King’s in 2012. The date of November 15 coincides with National Philanthropy Day.
Alumni and Development wants to make everyone aware that, in addition to the physical items across campus, donors also fund scholarships, awards, bursaries, and experiential learning opportunities for King’s students each year.
“We are so grateful to be surrounded and supported by such a caring and giving community,” Malcolm says. “Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in a student’s life.”
There are many ways to support King’s:
- Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference and is appreciated.
- Get involved: Support King’s with your time – volunteer; mentor; be a real-life hero.
- Show your pride: Share why you give your time, talents or philanthropic support to King’s.
- Challenge others to participate in this national day of giving by using #igivetokings in your social media posts.
