Students become “Quackers About Fundraising”

Thursday 27th February 2014 saw the second global “Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day” take place with over 100 universities worldwide getting involved.

Organised by CASE ASAP, the day was designed to encourage students around the world to get involved with philanthropy at their institutions and to start understanding its importance.

The University of Kent was one of only six universities in the UK to take part and the Kent Law Campaign Student Group took up the challenge with enthusiasm.  Having decided that they wanted to thank alumni and friends who have donated to the Kent Law Campaign, they came up with “Quackers About Fundraising”, a day where hundreds of yellow ducks were signed with thank you messages to our donors.

During the day a short video was filmed where our students expressed their thanks to those who have supported this important project.  This will be circulated to our donors as part of the University’s ongoing stewardship programme.

We would like to thank the Student Group for organising the day and to everybody who got involved.
