How does donating to your alma mater help future students?


Donating to your alma mater is a powerful way to give back and support future generations of students. As Carol Lee Stephan, a member of Daffy, puts it, supporting education is the "highest octane fuel" for great lives and careers. At Daffy, we believe that every donation, no matter how small, can make a significant impact. Many of our members, like Hank Fung, donate to specific departments or programs that they were involved in during their time at university. This not only helps fund research and scholarships but also provides a way for alumni to stay connected and involved with their alma mater. Moreover, donating to your alma mater can also be a way to honor friends and family. Carol, for instance, donates to her son's alma mater, John Carroll University, to support the institution that provided him with a wonderful experience. So, how much should you be giving? The answer is simple: give what feels most comfortable to you. Even a small donation can make a big difference. As Bella Avanessian, another Daffy member, points out, if a greater percentage of alumni donated even a small amount, the collective impact would be significant. If you're ready to start giving to your alma mater, Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). With Daffy, you can make a difference in the lives of future students, support the institutions that shaped you, and join a community of donors who are passionate about giving back. Remember, every donation counts, and together, we can make a difference. So, cheers to the graduating class of 2022, and here's to the impact your donations will make on the generations to come.
