Thanks to you, OU Suit Up was a success! Over 600 students participated in Suit Up and were able to leave JCPenney with professional attire to help prepare them for interviews, internships, and jobs. Of the 600 participants, 103 students received scholarship support, which allowed them to purchase professional attire at no cost to the student. This is amazing and we could not have done it without caring donors like you as well as the 67 university and community volunteers who helped out at the event.
Students are in the process of writing thank you notes to donors. We'll take a breath and in a few months, start planning to make 2019 the biggest OU Suit Up event yet! If you'd like to be involved next year in any way, please let us know.
Friends, Through your support, we were able to more than double our initial goal for OU Suit Up! In just 30 days, we raised $8,215 in student scholarship support for professional attire for interviews, internships, and jobs. This is our second year running a Thousands Strong online fundraising campaign and we far surpassed our total raised last year too! We would love to have you see this event in action. If you are interested in volunteering or just stopping by the event on Sunday, August 26, please let us know!
Wow! We have raised $7,665 to help OU students obtain professional attire for internships and upcoming interviews. With just two days left in our campaign, we have more than doubled our initial goal. Can we raise another $335 and make it to $8,000? With your help, we can! Thank you for your support.
We have just over a week remaining and have raised over $5,000 for student scholarships for professional attire! If we can raise another $2,000 before the campaign ends, we will be able to double our initial goal and provide suits for even more OU students! Please continue to share with your social networks. We hope you can join us at the event in August to see Suit Up in action.
Can you believe we are two weeks into our campaign and have surpassed our initial goal of $3,500? We only need $1,875 to double our goal! Do you think we can do it? I do! Help us double our goal and help even more students by continuing to share this program with your friends. Thank you for your support of OU Suit Up!
Thank you so much for your support of OU Suit Up! Thanks to your generosity, we have met our initial goal of $3,500, which will support 14 students with scholarships for professional attire. Last year, we were able to award over 80 student scholarships. We would be thrilled to award 100 scholarships this year. At only a week into our campaign, I think we can do it! Please continue to share this project with your networks and through social media. Thank you again for supporting our students!
