Final Results for most # of unique donations!
A sincere thank you to everyone who hustled to support UAEM for #GivingTuesday! UAEM officially scored a hat-trick by placing second out of more than 4000 organizations on GlobalGiving for the third year in a row for the most number of unique donations (and placed 35th overall for overall giving). We raised $16,897 in total with just over $10K coming from direct donations from people like you - so thank you! A special shout out is well deserved for our UCLA student chapter who raised over $1000 via more than 100 donations. A new chapter record!
In the adrenaline-filled final minutes we pushed to secure our place and the bonus prize of an additional $3k that will support our student-driven advocacy campaigns in 2020 - a critical year. You can read all about our current North American campaign progress in our latest UAEM North America newsletter linked below.
Thanks again for helping us achieve this victory. And if you weren't able to give yesterday, our end of year campaign began yesterday so there's still time to support us from wherever you are in the world. Your donations will go to support student-driven campaigns to make publicly-funded developed on university campuses accessible and affordable for all. As a grassroots network of students, every single donation counts for us - as the difference between 2nd and 3rd place showed - there were only 8 donations in it - check out a snapshot of the leaderboard for our category!
