Before Sarah Lawrence Giving Day

Subject: Join me in Supporting Sarah Lawrence!

Hi [first_name],

I am excited to share that I am supporting Sarah Lawrence College by acting as a fundraising volunteer for Giving Day on March 4. 

We all have so many reasons to appreciate our Sarah Lawrence education. Our support, regardless of the amount, helps today’s students receive the same amazing college experience that we enjoyed.

Sarah Lawrence Giving Day is a 24-hour donor challenge that will bolster the resources needed to support Sarah Lawrence faculty and students. Please mark your calendar and join me by contributing to the College on March 4! Importantly, the College will earn $25,000 for every 100 donors who give on that day.

Thank you for supporting Sarah Lawrence!

Subject: Your impact!

Sarah Lawrence Giving Day is only [X] days away. On March 4, your gift has an even bigger impact as it helps the College earn generous challenge dollars.

  • $25 – One student networking day in NYC 
  • $50 – Van shuttle to area shopping for two hours
  • $100 – One hour of individual or group counseling
  • $250 – One day of financial aid for a student
  • $500 – Two faculty-organized events for First-Year Studies classes

Together we can make a difference. Visit [LINK TO FUNDRAISING PAGE] to support Sarah Lawrence.
