29 November A Golden Opportunity for Giving Tuesday November 29, 2016By Melissa Mayer General Foundation, Golden Opportunity 0 Tweet This year on Giving Tuesday alumni have an opportunity to change the lives of current students eligible for Phi Theta Kappa who cannot afford the membership fees. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. On Tuesday, November 29, Phi Theta Kappa's 2016-2017 International Officer Team needs your help to meet their goal sharing the Phi Theta Kappa Experience with more members. They have set a goal of funding 500 Golden Opportunity Scholarships for needy students by PTK Catalyst 2017, April 6-8. “Fortunately, my college sponsored my membership fee. If it wasn’t for their generosity, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” said Sara Hwang, Division I International Vice President. “I hope every student who is eligible to join but unable to due to financial barriers can take advantage of the Golden Opportunity Scholarship.” As you know, Phi Theta Kappa can be a game changer, greatly increasing a student's chances of reaching their educational goals. Your gift to the Golden Opportunity Scholarship covers Phi Theta Kappa membership fees for students with financial need, giving them access to benefits that can truly change their path in life. A gift of just $5 per month from you means they are one scholarship closer to their goal of 500. Set up your monthly gift online today, and use our social media toolkit to help spread the word. Let's each one, help one and together we can help the international officers reach this goal, while ensuring student success!
