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 Engagement 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.

Members of the SPC have the opportunity to serve on the Class Gift Committee. This committee works as a group to determine goals for Class Gift and executes various strategies to raise funds, allowing the graduating class to leave their legacy at Widener.
