Philanthropy Day To Honor SHSU’s Donors

Nov. 13, 2017
SHSU Media Contact: Emily Binetti


Sam Houston State University’s Annual Giving Office will recognize alumni and friends who support SHSU through their contributions as part of National Philanthropy Day on Wednesday (Nov. 15). 

All students are encouraged to stop by the Annual Giving table in the Lowman Student Center Mall Area from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to sign a “Thank You” banner to university alumni and friends who have made financial contributions to the university.

Gifts from supporters help SHSU continue to provide a quality education for students and enables the university to have a profound and meaningful effect on peoples’ lives – both today and in the future.

“Sam Houston wouldn’t be what it is without their generous contributions, and many students probably don’t realize how much donors actually give to the university,” said Meggan Thompson, assistant director of Annual Giving. “This event gives students the opportunity to show their appreciation.”
