Throughout the years, Earlham has brought together a committee of seniors to begin a philanthropic relationship with the College and raise money for a goal of their choosing. Beginning in 2016, the effort began to include all current students — led by a volunteer committee of their dedicated peers — in a philanthropic effort that involves the whole community.
The All Class Gift Committee surpassed its goal of $10,000 and wrapped up the year with $13,013.25 that will benefit scholarships and diversity training on campus. The hard work and dedication of the committee members was outstanding and will leave a lasting impression on Earlham’s Campus.
Committee members were: Hope Steiner `16, Justyna Gawel `16, Kedar Bullock `16, Chloe Halsted `18, Miranda Davis `17, Alandra Douglas `17, Katherine Sorrows `17, Elisabeth Sorrows `17, Ronke Abodunrin `17, Gabby Chacon `19 and Erik Seketal `19. Support the 2016 All Class Gift today!
