Did you miss Seattle U Gives 2022? You can still make an impact today!
Nonprofit Leadership
Begin. Succeed. Finish.

Unprecedented. New Normal. Adapt. Pivot. Societal Change. Reckoning. Inequity.

Over the last two years, we are pretty sure you’ve read your fair share of appeal letters containing some of these buzzwords born of the moment we currently find ourselves. We promise this isn’t another one of those letters.

Rather, we would like to tell you about the committed Nonprofit Leadership students wrestling with these themes, asking profound questions, conducting leading-edge research, and preparing to push our sector forward for the better. Students like Mikala Lain, for whom scholarship support made pursuing an MNPL degree possible. “Without this scholarship, I would have not been able to pursue my degree, find my new support system, or realize my passions for giving back to my community,” Mikala said. “With the opportunity that this scholarship has granted me, my life has completely changed.”

With Seattle U Gives 2022 on February 24, we have the opportunity to make more stories like Mikala’s possible. The Nonprofit Leadership Program and our Alumni Council want to ensure every Nonprofit Leadership student has the resources and tools necessary to begin, succeed, and finish the program. Your donation during Seattle U Gives will support the Nonprofit Excellence Fund, which provides scholarships and resources to students to do exactly that.

During Seattle U Gives, we have set a goal to raise $5,000 in 24 hours. Thanks to a generous alum of the program, we are $1,500 of the way toward our goal. Also, our very own Nonprofit Leadership Alumni Council is pledging $1,000, which means we are just $2,500 away from our goal!

To make a donation, please visit https://seattlugives.seattleu.edu/mnpl on 2/24/22 between midnight and 11:59pm. Thanks in advance for your support of the Nonprofit Leadership Program.
