          This year students raised more than $9,000 that will be matched by faculty, staff, and alumni, as part of the 2014-2015 Student Giving Campaign.

          The campaign encourages students to give back to the UC Hastings community by supporting the on-campus groups and organizations that interest them most.

          “It is not really about how much they give, it is about getting students involved in philanthropy and getting them in the habit of supporting things that they care about,” said Robin Drysdale, Annual Giving Manager. “If you look at the numbers, this year the student have raised about three times more than they raised last year.”

          The campaign boasted one of its highest grossing years thus far. This is likely due to the fund matching by UC Hastings faculty, staff and alumni. “We are really helping them double the impact,” said Drysdale. Once the matching is complete the program will have raised $18,000 in the 2014-2015 school year.

          Among the student donors, one organization stands out. Members of the Hastings to Haiti Partnership were single-handedly responsible for one-third of this year’s student donations. The group raised funds from over a dozen donors in support of the organization's efforts to launch the first legal clinic in Haiti.

          “I have been able to see the significance that any gift has on the work of an organization,” said Clarissa Choy, a member of the Hastings to Haiti Partnership, who traveled on this year's delegation. “Personally, it’s great seeing that these gifts can become that much more impactful.”

          Drysdale and her colleagues are working to bring even more support to the campaign. She and Professor Scott Dodson are hoping to gain 100% support from faculty and staff in the coming years.

          Contributions for the campaign will be accepted until commencement on May 10th. Visit the Student Giving Campaign website to find out how to donate.
