#GivingTuesday 2020!

Join us on #GivingTuesday by making a generous donation to support scholarships for our students. Your gift will support the diversity of the UWC-USA community that creates opportunities for growth and exchange during classroom discussions, cultural day celebrations, working side-by-side at the school farm, or on Southwest Studies adventures. In addition to scholarships, your support can provide items essential for the UWC-USA experience, such as tents and sleeping bags for our wilderness program or school supplies for students who can’t otherwise afford them. Help us raise $100,000 on #GivingTuesday!

There are two ways you can make a difference:

With your gifts we can reach our goal of $100,000 on #GivingTuesday for scholarships – funds that will be matched when we meet the Davis Family Challenge Grant again this year.

Any gift amount donated until Dec. 1 will be matched, up to $25,000, thanks to the generosity of Julia (Broehl) Hesse ’91 and Randall Hesse and an anonymous donor.

UWC-USA is a training ground for change-makers. Students enter as idealists and graduate well-equipped to succeed and make lasting, positive change. Those who’ve experienced it will tell you it transformed them. Those who support it philanthropically will tell you about the satisfaction of knowing they helped develop the kind of thoughtful, compassionate leaders the world truly needs.
