It’s the final week of Thunderbird’s second annual Global Giving Competition and the China & Hong Kong team remains in first place for the second year in a row, with a participation rate of 27.2 percent.
Second place currently belongs to the Southeast Asia team, followed closely by the U.K. team.
While the Washington D.C. Area team led the U.S. last year, the current domestic team in the lead is the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine team — with a participation rate of 14.2 percent.
With just five days remaining, the school stands at 12.5 percent participation. Thunderbird’s alumni participation goal is 15 percent this year. This means 776 new Annual Fund gifts are still needed to reach this goal.
The Thunderbird Annual Fund provides a vital source of assistance for scholarships, technology, curriculum development, faculty research and alumni programs and services. It allows the school to allocate funds where they are most needed and keeps the core of Thunderbird alive and well.
We hope we can count on you to make your gift this year! If you have already made a gift to Thunderbird, we thank you for your support. If you haven’t yet made a gift to Thunderbird, remember that it’s not too late to make your gift today.
