Second Annual Day of Giving Surpasses Goal

The Saint Joseph’s community came together in an unprecedented show of support for the University’s second Day of Giving on November 17, 2015, accounting for nearly $225,000 from 1,546 gifts. Surpassing its goal of 1,250 gifts, the Day of Giving effort was bolstered by personal outreach and time-sensitive challenges that increased the impact of donations. Students hosted daylong campus activities to engage the community.

“The Day of Giving was about an entire community coming together to make a difference in the lives of our students,” says University Advancement Vice President Marty Farrell ’88 (B.A.), ’98 (M.S.). “Thank you to the many Hawks who generously contributed to our efforts. Together, we are touching many lives.”

The third annual Day of Giving is slated for April 4, 2017.


SJU Volunteers Impact World Meeting of Families

monteroMore than 700 SJU students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends registered to volunteer during the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) and Pope Francis’s visit to Philadelphia in September 2015. They served in many roles, from answering the telephones in an on-campus call center to staffing events on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Philadelphia’s Jesuit University claimed one of the WMOF’s largest contingents of volunteers.

National Alumni Board member Maria Montero ’98 (B.A.), external affairs manager at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority, served as a volunteer captain. She also participated at the WMOF’s “Day of Service.”

“My role at the Convention Center made supporting the World Meeting a natural fit,” she says. “Saint Joseph’s identified a great opportunity for our community to be a part of history and welcome the world’s spiritual leader, Pope Francis, in true Jesuit form.”
