Samford Prepares for Big Give
Tomorrow kicks off Samford University's first-ever Big Give.
The 36-hour online giving campaign will allow Samford alumni, parents and friends as well as businesses to show their support through gifts that will be designated to the Samford Fund and will benefit the university's area of greatest need.
The Big Give will begin at 9 a.m. CDT on Thursday, June 13, and end at 9 p.m. on Friday, June 14. During that timeframe, online giving can take place via computer, smartphone or tablet. Credit and debit card donations can be made through the campaign site at www.razoo.com/story/SamfordsBigGive2013.
"The minimum gift amount for the Big Give is just $10 and all donations are tax deductible," said Samford director of annual giving Kimberly Cripps.
Because of the unique 36-hour window of opportunity, checks and cash will not be accepted for this giving event, she cautions.
For more information, contact Cripps at (205) 726-4180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
