Show your gratitude to donors at EmoryThanks stations, open Oct. 2-6

Each year, thousands of donors give millions of dollars to Emory, often through smaller annual gifts of $25, $50 or $100. Donors also provide books for the libraries, fund public lectures around campus, donate works of art and provide financial aid for students. But the Emory community rarely has the opportunity to say things like, “Your gift matters,” or “Thank you for changing lives at Emory.”

The eighth annual EmoryThanks Week, happening Oct. 2-6, is the perfect opportunity to change that. Any member of the Emory community can stop by multiple stations, including one on the Oxford College campus, to write a note, take photos or jump into videos thanking donors. 

Every station will offer treats or prizes for participants.

Messages of gratitude for Emory donors can also be shared on social media using #EmoryThanks.
