3rd year for the Ursuline community to
"Crowd for TUS"
* 24 hours of fun and fundraising
* Starts April 24 at noon
* Challenge funds
* Goal: 1,000 gifts in 24 hours
Our crowdfunding events have been a huge success thanks to the overwhelming support of The Ursuline School Community.
Last year, in our second crowdfunding, 791 gifts streamed in to add up to more than $90,000.
April 24 - 25, 2017, noon to noon, will be our third 24-hour crowdfunding event! We invite you to join the crowd and join the fun!
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a festive and inspiring online campaign in which current parents, alumnae, parents of alumnae, faculty, trustees, and friends from across the U.S. and around the world join together to raise money for Ursuline in a short time frame.
How do I take part?
The special online CROWDS4TUS donation portal will be activated on April 24 at noon, for 24 hours.
If you'd like to donate by check, that will work, too. You can send to The Ursuline School, 1354 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10804, Attention: Advancement Team. Send now and include your shout out for the Shout Out Wall - any message of support, congratulations, or if you are donating in honor of someone.
You can also use Venmo - to Ursuline Koala.
Or, call us during the event, at 914-636-5169.
Whatever method you choose, your action will make an enormous difference in the success of CROWDS4TUS!
How much do I give?
We suggest $24, or any variation such as $48 or $124 or more. You can also give round amounts such as $100. It's your choice!
Where does my gift go?
All gifts made on April 24 - 25 will count as Annual Fund donations and immediately impact the learning experience at our school. On our CROWDS4TUS portal we will show our progress throughout the day. Check frequently and cheer on the crowd!
Attend a reception on April 24. At Ursuline 3 - 5 pm, or at North End Tavern 5:30 - 8 p.m., or at An American Bistro 5:30 - 8 p.m. Or organize your own gathering and check our progress on the Action Center.
New this year! Challenge Funds.
Your well timed generosity can release thousands of dollars during CROWDS4TUS.
