Crusade Alumni Make a Difference by Giving Back



Here’s a great report on the latest Crusade alumni news from Sarah Vanover, our Development & Alumni Relations Assistant:

“In the past two months, Crusade alumni and friends have rallied together to raise money to purchase books for Crusaders in our ReadAbout program. On January 21, the College Crusade Alumni Association launched a fundraising campaign on the popular crowdfunding site GoFundMe. The campaign was promoted via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Members bobby with sign2 - IMG_20150316_131839of the Crusade Alumni Association donated to the campaign and posted pictures on their social media accounts tagged #IReadAbout. In the pictures, they held signs that showed all the topics they loved to read about. It took a few weeks to gain momentum, but soon the campaign took off… donations upwards of $25 poured in. The largest donation, in the amount of $270, was given by a Crusade alumna.

The original goal of the campaign was to raise $1000 in 4 months. However, due to the generosity of 21 amazing individuals, $1010 was raised in half that time. Success! What an amazing and inspirational way to show the Crusaders in ReadAbout that Crusade alumni care about their academic achievements. Please visit our GoFundMe page to learn more about ReadAbout.

Many thanks again, to our donors and the Crusade Alumni Association. Because of you these children will have the tools they need to advance academically.”
