Carroll EWB Holiday Campaign kicks off

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

The 2016 Carroll EWB Holiday Campaign is now underway! You can make your donation at our 2016 Holiday Season Campaign web page.

From now until January 15, 2017, the EWB Chapter that gets the most number donations will get a $1000 bonus prize, and the Chapter that gets the most money donated will also get a $1000 bonus prize. Therefore, if you can, please make your donation this week (by Monday, December 5). Last year, we won a $1000 prize during the first week. However, if you can’t make a donation during this first week1, you will have plenty of time because our campaign runs until January 15, 2017.

Again this year, Willis and Nancy Wetstein will match your donation dollar-for-dollar up to a total matching amount of $10,000. Thank you Willis and Nancy!

You can also help us reach our goal2 by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to family and friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page! The link is at http://support.ewb-usa.org/Carroll.

Your donation will support our engineering service projects in Guatemala, St. Lucia, and Uganda3. You will find more information about our projects at our Holiday Season Campaign web page.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Carly Colligan, President
John L. Scharf, Faculty Advisor

Footnotes:

  1. A Chapter can only win one of the $1000 prizes during the campaign. This year’s prize contest is sponsored by NCEES.
  2. Our goal for this year is $15,000 before the $10,000 match by Willis and Nancy Wetstein.
  3. Our Mexico project is currently idle because we have successfully completed the sanitary sewer project and the agriculture irrigation project at the Santa Maria Home for Children.
