The Student Philanthropy Council


Student Philanthropy Council 2016-17

The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is an organization of diverse student ambassadors who are passionate about Widener University. The SPC promotes philanthropy on campus through education, programming, and outreach. Working under the direction of the Office of Development and Alumni Relations staff, members demonstrate the impact of giving back for students, alumni, and other members of the Widener community. SPC members also gain practical experience in the realm of development, fundraising, and leadership.

Seniors and Juniors who are a part of the SPC have the opportunity within the council to become a member of the Senior Class Gift Committee. This committee works as a group to determine goals for Senior Class Gift and executes various strategies to raise funds, allowing the senior class to leave their legacy at Widener.

Questions about the Student Philanthropy Council may be directed to Janelle Rushton by email or phone at extension 4360.

Students interested in supporting the Class Gift can give online.
