Tag Day: Tagging Areas of Impact
November 15, 2019
November 15, also known as National Philanthropy Day, is a day to celebrate the heartfelt contributions individuals and organizations make to countless causes and missions across the world. At King’s, it is our opportunity to see the impact donors and community partners have had on our campus, and reflect on the daily impact their generosity has had on our students.
As you travel the King’s campus on Friday, November 15th, you will notice large green tags drawing your attention to various donor-funded projects – lounges, rooms, buildings, artwork, and the list goes on.
Besides raising awareness, the purpose of King’s Tag Day is to recognize the people who come together to impact King’s in a positive and meaningful way.
King’s Alumni and Development team posted these 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.
“The King’s University College campus would look much different without the support of donors and community partners. Tags can be found across campus including, but not limited to, the Badeau Family Meeting Room, Rosemary's Courtyard, the Michael and Rosemary O’Hare Family Auditorium Lobby, and the John and Frances Vitali Student Lounge. We are so grateful to be surrounded and supported by such a caring and giving community; a community that understands that every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in a student’s life," says Jana Gordon, Executive Director of Development.
In addition to the physical items across campus, we are thankful for the donors who fund scholarships, awards, bursaries, and experiential learning opportunities each year for King’s students.
