Giving Day Ambassador Toolkit

Your involvement as a Giving Day Ambassador will help us reach our Day of Giving Goals!

I Heart Fisher Day of Giving is the College’s first-ever giving day, a 24-hour challenge to increase giving participation among the entire community. With so many loyal and caring alumni, families, employees, and friends, we can make a difference for current and future Fisher students. Your involvement as a Giving Day Ambassador will help us reach our fundraising goals!

Knowing our volunteers have busy lives, we ask you to take these three simple steps below to demonstrate your pride in Fisher and spread the word among your friends and networks.

Three Simple Steps

  1. Make your gift on March 21, 2019. If you have already made a gift this year, thank you! By making an additional gift of any size on March 21, you can help us secure essential funding for what you love most about Fisher.
  2. Email your contacts. Email your friends and networks and ask them to join you in making a gift on I Heart Fisher Day of Giving. Sample email messages and suggested timelines can be found below.
  3. Spread the word. Talk about #FisherGivingDay on your own social media outlets. Post your own Fisher story on Facebook, tweet why you give, or post a selfie on Instagram using #FisherGivingDay, the campaign’s official hashtag. You can also find sample messages that you can use below.
