Giving Tuesday and Phone-A-Thon Campaigns Bring in More Than $65,000 to Support MSM Scholarships

2017 MSM Phone-A-Thon 

Thanks to the Giving Tuesday and Phone-A-Thon campaigns over the last few weeks, Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) has brought in over $65,000 from individual donors, exceeding expectations and providing support that will help ease the financial burdens of students.

On Tuesday, December 5, current students, staff, and faculty reached out to MSM alumni during the annual Phone-A-Thon. Nearly 30 volunteers manned the phones for the event. In all, almost $44,000 was raised, exceeding the initial goal of $25,000.

Giving Tuesday 2017Just a week earlier, MSM took part in Giving Tuesday. Leading up to the event on November 28, MSM encouraged students and those working at the medical school to support their own. A lunchtime celebration was held to thank those who donated during the campaign, now in its third year. MSM raised close to $22,000, almost three times its initial goal.

“In establishing and maintaining a culture of giving, our efforts today can become a legacy of giving so that future biomedical scientists and medical professionals can become the future health leaders our country desperately needs,” said second-year Ph.D. student Christopher De Vera, one of the beneficiaries of MSM’s scholarships.
