The American Marketing Association Foundation (AMAF) and the AMA Collegiate Chapters Council (CCC) invite all AMA Collegiate chapters to participate in the annual #GivingTuesday challenge on December 3, 2019.
As the philanthropic arm of the AMA, the American Marketing Association Foundation champions individual marketers who are making an impact in our profession and community. As a college student, you know that support often presents itself as financial need. In 2018, the AMAF launched the Students Helping Students program and competition, an opportunity for collegiate members to give back to their community and compete with other chapters.
Through the AMAF #GivingTuesday collegiate competition, students can help one another by fundraising for AMA collegiate scholarships in support of their peers. #GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2019.
Starting October 1, 2019, AMA collegiate chapters are encouraged to create and execute a fundraising campaign in support of AMA collegiate scholarships. The goal of this campaign is to get members, non-members, alumni, faculty, staff, family, etc. to donate to AMA’s “Students helping Students” campaign on or before #GivingTuesday (December 3, 2019).
Please share this donation form starting October 1st to encourage participation. Remember to select your chapter’s state/province and chapter name, so that credit can be given for your efforts. (Please be sure to give your donors the correct name of your university. Remember, some schools have multiple campuses or locations, so be specific!)
Any amount is appreciated and all fundraising efforts can be highlighted in the Community & Social Impact section of chapter’s annual reports. (Note: total donations received per chapter will be shared on the AMA Collegiate website by mid-December).
Your chapter is eligible to win awards for your generosity to your fellow students. Special recognition will be given at the upcoming International Collegiate Conference on March 12-14 to chapters that raise the most money. These awards will be given to both large and small chapters.
- Recognition from the stage and on the conference app at the 2020 AMA International Collegiate Conference for all participating chapters
- The top 25 chapters will receive a certificate for their efforts
- The top 10 chapters that identify and compete for the Top Small Chapter awards will receive a certificate for their outstanding efforts
- The TOP chapter from the top 25 and top 10 above which raises the most funding will receive reserved premium seating for their entire chapter at Friday’s Competition Ceremony (March 13, 2020)
Your chapter can empower student leaders like last year’s winners by donating on #GivingTuesday, and receive recognition at the AMA International Collegiate Conference in March 2020!
