My favorite college is having a one day campaign to enlist support. It’s a two-way matching grant opportunity. In this day when most college education neglects character, Houghton mentors students by example and curriculum design to become servant leaders in today’s world. Many college graduates are having a hard time getting work, but at Houghton the situation is different. They were recently recognized for outstanding success with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) graduates. “The success rate for STEM studies has proven to be true at Houghton College where over the past five years, 100 percent of graduates who obtained degrees in chemistry, biochemistry, physics, math, and computer science have obtained jobs in their desired field of study within six months of graduating from Houghton or gone on to Ph.D. or master’s degree programs.” (http://www.houghton.edu/news-media/recent-news/houghton-graduates-excel-in-stem-fields-compared-to-other-colleges/377/) If you would like to help students at a college like that, I invite you to participate in this one day of giving. Both your gift and your presence among the givers will make a difference. I very seldom put fund-raising things on my blog. There are just too many available. But today I am making an exception for a great cause. All gifts made today toward the Student Scholarship Fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $150,000. In addition, if 500 donors make a gift today to scholarships or any other projects across campus, Houghton will receive a gift of $100,000. Visit www.houghton.edu to donate today.
