A YEAR OF VIRTUAL ENGAGEMENT
Virtual Scholarship Ceremony
The Foundation hosted a Virtual Scholarship Ceremony in November 2020 for scholarship donors and recipients. Students contributed photos and video messages to thank benefactors responsible for their scholarship awards, giving donors the opportunity to hear firsthand the impact of their generosity.
During the Foundation’s first-ever Giving Tuesday campaign in December, the community came together in a big way with donors giving more than $12,000. At the end of a particularly challenging year with the pandemic, the success of Giving Tuesday was especially meaningful.
Virtual Trivia Nights
To engage the community and raise funds for student scholarships, the Foundation held two Virtual Trivia Nights with Mayor Jim Kenney. Participants got to show off their knowledge of Philadelphia and women’s history during fun competitions in December and March. Nearly $12,000 was raised to support students.
On June 23, the Philadelphia community came together virtually for the annual Black & Gold Gala hosted by the Foundation. It was the most successful Gala yet, with over $401,000 raised for scholarships.
