Major Donors

The Philadelphia Student Union invites you to become a major donor.

Thank you for being a supporter of the Philadelphia Student Union. Supporters like you allow our work to flourish.

This is your chance to give a thoughtful gift that will help sustain the Philadelphia Student Union for years to come.

Who is a Major Donor?

Major Donors commit to giving an annual gift of $250 or more. This includes becoming a monthly sustainer at $21 or more, per month.

Major Donors are invited to meet with Philly Student Union staff, board and members so we can build relationships, give you up-to-date information about our work, answer any question you may have and ask for your continued support.

We make meetings convenient for you. We’ll come to your office, home or favorite coffee shop for relaxed conversation about our work and how you can impact it.

Why Major Donors?

We believe in the power of relationships. We build relationships with students, school staff, parents and community members around a common cause. Through these relationships we’re able to build the power it takes to improve our schools and communities. Through grassroots fundraising, we get to build and strengthen relationships with a growing circle of supporters who are excited about what we do and are ready to get involved. Grassroots fundraising allows us to be funded by our friends, family, allies and supporters in our communities, making us a stronger and more sustainable organization.
