Pirate Change: Small Buc$, Big Impact

  • News Image

New program makes it easier to support smaller projects on campus

Check out Southwestern’s “Pirate Change” giving page to learn more about a few of the projects going on in our campus community. Currently, four programs are featured – the Community Garden, Pirate Bikes, the SMArT mentoring program and a book scholarship fund.

Throughout the year,  projects like these help to make the Southwestern community a better place - for students, faculty, staff and even the Georgetown community as well. While they may not be large or high-profile, these project have a significant impact on those involved. And in this time of tightened budgets, each of these worthy projects is in genuine need of additional funding.

Donations of $10, $25 or $50 can make a significant difference. Please see the end date for each project, and donate today.

“If you can open the door and show the fascinating world of science to 3rd-5th graders so they stay more science-literate in life, then mission accomplished. Good luck!” —David ’95 on SMArT

“I don’t mind giving a small amount to continue a program that I loved while on campus.” —Shelley ’11 on Pirate Bikes

“Community…this is exactly what Southwestern needs to be involved in. Thanks to all who motivated this project.  I will contribute. Also, with this project everyone should read some of Wendell Berry’s poetry.” —James ’02 on the Community Garden

Every gift matters!
