#FREDlanthropy Day Tuesday at SUNY campus

Tuesday, Feb. 12 is the third #FREDlanthropy Day of Giving at the State University of New York at Fredonia. Fredonians of all affiliations are encouraged that day to take to the Fredonia social media pages and share their FREDfavorites, learn about the impact of donations around campus, and most importantly, spread the culture of #FREDlanthropy by giving back through the Fredonia College Foundation.

Every year, dedicated donors impact the Fredonia experience for all students – whether they choose to give to scholarships, departments and programs, learning spaces, or unrestricted funds which go toward priority needs. This year, on #FREDlanthropy Day, alumni are encouraged to consider the impact they might have if they challenge all of their Fredonia friends to match their gift as well, building a network of generosity that supports Fredonians for generations to come.

Organizers noted it is not the size of the gift, but rather the intent of the investment that makes an impact on the lives of Fredonians, and on the future of Fredonia. On Feb. 12, a gift through the Fredonia College Foundation means even more as it shows a commitment to the spirit of #FREDlanthropy and demonstrates the big and caring network of Fredonians.

Follow the action @fredoniau on social media, or at www.fredlanthropy.com and share the message of #FREDlanthropy.

Division of Advancement, Engagement and Economic Development Associate Director Jennifer Michalek noted, “Each experience of Fredonia has undoubtedly been influenced by alumni and donors from previous generations — from the scholarships granted to deserving students, to the programs and departments shaping the educational journey, to the very buildings and learning spaces comprising the Fredonia campus. Fredonia is much more than an educational institution, and becomes a community and home for many. This is what we celebrate on #FREDlanthropy Day.”
