When will I receive my beach towel?

Your limited-edition JHU beach towel should arrive in the mail within 8 – 10 weeks after #ONEHopkins. Your towel will be sent to the mailing address you provide when you make your gift.


What material is the beach towel, and how big is it?

The beach towels are 100% cotton terry velour and measure 30” x 60”.


Can I get more than one beach towel?

Yes, but only if you make separate transactions of $25 or more per transaction. Only one beach towel will be shipped per transaction.


Can I give to more than one area of Johns Hopkins for #ONEHopkins?

Yes, but only if you make separate transactions to each designation. You cannot split one transaction between multiple designations.


Can you ship internationally?

Unfortunately, we are not able to ship internationally. Only U.S. addresses will be able to receive beach towels.


Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes. You will receive a tax receipt via email after you make a gift. However, please note that there is an exchange of goods and services if you choose to receive the JHU beach towel with your donation. The fair market value ($10) of the item we are providing will reduce the tax credit of your gift, in accordance with federal tax regulations.
