#Giving Tuesday + Join PHENOM at Boston and Washington DC events today!

Thank you to all the donors who came out strong yesterday and put us over $2,000! But we still have a long way to go to meet our $5,000 matching opportunity by Saturday December 5th! Help us get there by donating TODAY. Share the fundraiser with your friends and colleagues. Post it to Facebook and Twitter!


Today is #GivingTuesday and all donations you make TODAY will be eligible for prizes that can boost your donation to PHENOM. Check out the details here. You have less than 24 hours left to have your donations boosted with #GivingTuesday prizes.


And join us in two events today! PHENOM’s Executive Director, Natalie Higgins, at the Center for American Progress’s Exploring the Geography of Student Debt: How States and Municipalities Can Act. Even though Natalie is in Washington, DC — you can tune in via this livestream, starting at 10AM. And then at 11:30AM — PHENOM’s President, Kimberly Selwitz, will be at Raise Up Mass’s rally on the State House Steps, as the coalition celebrates turning in more than 155,000 signatures. She’ll be speaking about PHENOM’s work, the importance of the Fair Share Amendment to tackling the Student Debt Crisis in Massachusetts, and celebrating our PHENOMenal members who collected more than 1,500 signatures.


Will you be joining us Saturday December 5th from 12PM-3PM at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester for our Winter General Assembly Meeting. We’ll be celebrating the final day of our 10 Days to $10K Challenge, discussing what “free higher ed” should look like in Mass, and looking forward to next semester’s Campus Chapter actions and Public Higher Education Advocacy Day (March 7, 2016). Check out a full agenda here. We’ll provide lunch, but you have to RSVP by replying to this email.
