In recognition of National Philanthropy Day®, Alumni Affairs and SALUTE (StFX student alumni society) have initiated a new program called X Marks the Spot. The main goal of this program is to increase awareness among students of how alumni support contributes to the campus and their StFX experience. Campus buildings, learning resources, and student programs are all made possible though alumni support.
On Monday, November 16th, SALUTE and other student volunteers will post the large blue X posters throughout campus to identify samples of this alumni support. Also on Monday, tables will be set-up in the Bloomfield Centre and Keating Millennium Centre with blank Thank You cards to give the students the opportunity to send a personal thank you to alumni donors.
To submit your thank yous please email firstname.lastname@example.org
