December is a time where we take stock of the past year, spend time with family and loved ones, think about others, and give as much as we receive. For the past few years, Giving Tuesday has been a wonderful way to launch the season of giving.
This year, we’re spreading the giving around. When you make a gift in December to support Franklin & Marshall College students, we’ll share with you a token of our gratitude in the form of your choice of a pair of F&M face coverings, a pair of custom-designed F&M cotton socks or an F&M knit hat.*
But the giving doesn’t end there. For every gift made to F&M in December, we’ll also donate a personal care item to Water Street Mission, a Lancaster-area organization that supports families and individuals in need, even if you choose not to receive your own gift from us.
The mission of educating women and men for lives of service and advancement is at the heart of our work in Annual Giving. Thank you for joining the thousands of alumni, parents and friends who support F&M students through their giving. From all of us at Franklin & Marshall, we wish you a joyous December and the happiest of holidays!
*Please note the minimum contribution required to receive each item. If you choose to receive an item, a portion of your donation may not be tax deductible. See below for details. This will be reflected on the receipt we send you. Please be sure to indicate which qualifying item you would like to receive. If you do not want to receive an item, please select the “no item” option on the giving form. Giveaways will continue through December; all replies must be sent before Dec. 31, 2020, to qualify for an item. Please allow 5–7 weeks for delivery. Gifts chosen on or before Giving Tuesday will arrive by the holidays.
