The McMurry Student Foundation (MSF) decided it was time to show some appreciation for all of the support McMurry receives from our alumni and friends. Over 300 students participated in the event involving four different components. Students signed a giant banner as a thank you card, gave video “shout outs” to our donors and took photos to send to President’s Council donors in appreciation for their level of giving. The fourth component involved an online vote facilitated through Moodle where the students were given four options of where to spend $1,800 donated back to the University by MSF. The students voted and selected the option to purchase bleachers for the intramurals field. With over 50% of the student body involved in intramural athletics, this investment will benefit a large population of the McMurry community. By fundraising and giving students the power to choose where the funds are used, MSF hopes to instill a sense in philanthropy in current students, therefore creating generous future donors. The day was a huge success and will become a new McMurry tradition for years to come.
