Thursday a day for philanthropy

To celebrate National Philanthropy Day which falls on this Thursday, the Student Alumni Association (SAA) is teaming with the UVM Foundation to display philanthropy on campus.

Members of SAA have organized an event, taking place on Nov.14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Davis Center Atrium, focused on the impact of philanthropy at UVM and how it shapes the students.

SAA is a club on campus that runs various events through the year, including Winter Ball, Fan Fest, and Senior Week. They are the student link between undergraduates and alumni, and create a sense of school spirit, club president and senior Kathleen Doyle said.

“SAA is the student organization that connects the alumni to the students,” she said. “Philanthropy day is one of the most important events because we hope to remind students that our school could not run without donations from alumni and friends of the university.”
