Members Make #GivingTuesday a Success

Dec 08, 2016

AMSA members gave over $15,000 to the Foundation for #GivingTuesday. Excitement increased this year, only the second time that AMSA has celebrated this event, as several individual members set up their own Facebook fundraising pages to take advantage of a matching funds challenge from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Members also strengthened established mentor funds and became Century Club members.

AMSA is receiving the maximum possible from Facebook's Gates Foundation match. Additional donations should be made by check or through AMSA's website meatscience.org/foundation.
