The China & Hong Kong team won Thunderbird’s Global Giving Competition for the second consecutive year. The region finished out the fiscal year with an alumni giving participation rate of 27.7 percent – almost 7 percentage points higher than last year.
Second place this year went to the Southeast Asia team, followed by the U.K. team. And it was a close match, as the Southeast Asia team finished with 17.8 percent and the U.K. team finished with 17.7 percent!
Congratulations to the leading U.S. team this year – the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine team. The region finished with 14.4 percent. Last year’s winner in this category was the Washington D.C. Area team.
Because the China & Hong Kong team placed No. 1, all donors in that region will have their names published in the Fall issue of Thunderbird Magazine. They will also receive a personal thank you letter from Thunderbird’s president.
Thunderbird would like to thank all the chapter leaders and alumni who participated in this competition by making a gift to Thunderbird and sharing the message via social media and e-mail. We greatly appreciate your support and enthusiasm.
Thunderbird’s goal for the fiscal year was 15 percent, but the year-end figure stands at 12.7 percent. Thank you to all of our alumni who made a gift to Thunderbird this year!
