Support Stamps Students on Giving Tuesday

On November 29, make a contribution to our Student Emergency Fund.

Giving Tuesday 11.29.22

A sudden financial hardship can derail a student’s creative journey and make it difficult to stay on track for graduation. 

This year, on Giving Tuesday — that’s November 29, 2022 — we hope you will join the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design to help meet the needs of students facing financial emergencies through the Stamps Student Emergency Fund.

The Stamps Emergency Fund was created by alumni to provide immediate resources and relief to help students during times of unexpected crisis, including a short-term lack of money for rent, food expenses, technology issues, even medical and dental necessities. The Emergency Fund can be the key to helping a student continue their studies at Stamps while they weather a financial emergency. 

This Giving Tuesday, we’re asking our Stamps community to make a donation of any amount to the Emergency Fund. 100% of these donations will be used for student needs in the coming year. Imagine being able to be part of an effort to help students during a challenging time. When you make a contribution, you get to do just that.

Let’s face it, life happens. When it does, we will be prepared to step in and be the support system our students need. With your help, we’ll build this crucial safety net together.
