The California team led the way – with 12 new gifts — during the past week of Thunderbird’s second annual Global Giving Competition.
As of June 11, 2012, Thunderbird still needs 886 new gifts to reach the goal of 15 percent alumni participation. We thank everyone who has already made a gift to Thunderbird and we hope that we can count on those who have not yet made a gift. Make your gift today.
Although the China & Hong Kong team did not bring in any new gifts during the past week, they still remain in first place with 26.1 percent participation, followed by the Southeast Asia team in second and the U.K. team in third. Leading the U.S. is the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine team.
