Philanthropy Week Kicks Off Monday

March 14, 2018

During the week of March 19 through March 23, a series of events will celebrate philanthropy at St. John Fisher College. Now in its third year, Philanthropy Week aims to educate students about the positive impact of giving on the campus community.

During the Thank-A-Donor Ice Cream Social, a student grabs ice cream from celebrity scoopers Professor Todd Harrison and President Rooney.

Co-sponsored by the Office of Institutional Advancement and the Student Alumni Association, Philanthropy Week events include Thank-A-Donor Day, Cardinal on the Street philanthropy trivia contest, and Senior Class Giving Day, among others.
