#GivingTuesdayatCWRU 2019

This campaign ended on December 04, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Case Western Reserve University by clicking here!

Each year, Case Western Reserve University joins in the global #GivingTuesday movement through #GivingTuesdayatCWRU. The idea behind #GivingTuesday is an effort to keep the spirit of giving alive during the holiday season and takes place each year following the traditional holiday shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, #GivingTuesday is Tuesday, December 3.

#GivingTuesdayatCWRU offers students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the university a way to join the spirit of #GivingTuesday by making a gift that will benefit causes affiliated with campus schools, departments and organizations that allow members of the CWRU community to serve others on a local, national, and global scale.

Descriptions of each cause are listed below: 

Advocates for Cleveland Health
Advocates for Cleveland Health’s (A4CH) mission is to improve the health of greater Cleveland’s underserved populations and the Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) campus through screenings, education, and advocacy. Our members embrace cultural humility and empathy so that they can educate themselves and think critically about health disparities. Using their knowledge and skills, they develop, advocate for, and become involved in long-lasting solutions that promote health and health equity in the Cleveland community.   By donating to A4CH, your funding will go directly toward public health and advocacy projects intended to get students more involved in the Cleveland Community.

Autism Speaks U CWRU
Autism Speaks U seeks to increase awareness, educate our peers, and serve those on campus and in our community. Through volunteering, we teach students and faculty how they are able to make a difference and be a voice for the autism community in Cleveland. Our goal is to foster an environment of understanding and learning to better assist those with autism. We provide CWRU students opportunities to volunteer with children in the Sparties Running Program, a cost-free program for children on the spectrum that promotes exercise, team spirit, and social skills via track-and-field activities.

Chabad at CWRU
Help Chabad at CWRU GO GREEN! Chabad hosts dozens of students for Friday night Shabbat dinners and that results in many bags of trash. We, the students, want to help the environment by raising money to purchase real dishes and bowls. Imagine no more bags full of garbage and beautifully set Shabbat tables!

CWRU EMS
Case Western Reserve University Emergency Medical Service is a student-run, volunteer organization that offers free emergency medical care, transport, and training to our campus and the surrounding area. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on your donations to pay for the training equipment and financial aid providing students the opportunity to become EMTs. Help us continue to provide care to our campus with the opportunity to serve their community.

CWRU Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity at CWRU works to further Habitat International's mission and ideals. We do this by working to raise awareness and support among Case's community to recruit people dedicated to fighting substandard housing for life. Our funds will go towards Help Build Hope, in which we build all the walls for a 3 bedroom house for a deserving partner family. This amazing event allows us to engage many student volunteers as we conduct all the building on campus before transporting the walls to the construction site. Building a house is no easy task but we are so grateful for our wonderful volunteers and donors who invest the time and money to transform a pile of lumber and trusses into a home. 

Emerging Scholars Program
The Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) promotes the academic success of students from the Cleveland area who enroll at CWRU. The program offers these students opportunities to strengthen their foundation in writing and mathematics; to connect with professors, advisors and mentors; and to learn about all of the campus resources available to help them meet the demands of college life. Prior to the students’ first semester, they participate in a summer bridge program that teaches them college success skills. Your support helps us provide students with full-tuition summer scholarships and stipends so they can take part in the bridge program.

Global Medical Brigades - Medical Mission Trip
Global Medical Brigades is an organization on campus that allows students to play an active role in the organization and running of mobile health care clinics in developing countries alongside in-country staff and physicians. Your donations will help students pay for their food, housing, and flights for this year's trip to Honduras

Health Advocacy and Leadership Organization (Medical School)

The mission of the Health Advocacy Leadership Organization is to develop, support, and sustain students’ professional commitment to advocacy. Physicians have a strong tradition of advocacy to improve the health of their patients. However, curricula on the political determinants of health and methods of enacting political change are limited. HALO is trailblazing innovative curricula, funding student research to work with community partners on scientific approaches to improve the health of our community. Your support empowers students to address health disparities through political action on social and economic determinants to improve population health

Healthy Smiles Sealant Program

The mission of the Healthy Smiles Sealant Program is to reduce disparities in oral health care for underserved children in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. Temporary clinics are provided, where pre-doctoral dental students perform dental exams and apply sealants to children in grades 2, 3 and 6. Children have cavity-free teeth sealed and a dentist referral is made by our program coordinator if needed. Health educators visit the schools to teach children about general and oral health care. Additionally, lesson plans for teachers are provided monthly to reinforce the message. The Sealant Program visits all 76 CMSD schools and treats over 5,000 children with 16,000 sealants.

Laura Chisolm ’81 Social Justice Fellowship Fund
Each summer, a number of CWRU School of Law students take unpaid internships within the public sector. The Laura Chisolm (LAW ’81) Society Justice Fellowship Fund enables qualified law students to obtain financial assistance, while pursuing their goal of working in public interest, as opposed to finding other paid summer positions outside the legal field. Your gift will support our continued efforts in providing our students with experiential educational opportunities, in the name and memory of Laura Chisolm (LAW ’81), a respected colleague and friend of the law school.  

Mandel School Study Abroad Scholarship
Every year, a number of CWRU undergraduate and graduate students study abroad with the Mandel School. Students broaden their perspectives on the world and gain new insight on how different countries and cultures approach social justice and social welfare issues, policies, and practices in order to bring back creative solutions for addressing challenges in their own communities. Your gift will directly support student scholarships for transformative global study in Ecuador, Guatemala, Poland, the Netherlands, South Africa, and Mexico this year. Every dollar makes a difference to our students. Please consider a gift today to make study abroad a reality for our students.  

Office of Multicultural Affairs Unity Scholarships
The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) encourages, supports and facilitates the success of all CWRU students by providing opportunities for diverse interaction and cultural education that occurs outside of the classroom environment. Each year, OMA provides student scholarships at the annual Unity Banquet and Scholarship Benefit to underrepresented students in need who embody the pillars of leadership, scholarship, service, and inclusion. In addition to funding tuition costs for current students, scholarships can be used for study abroad, research opportunities, and professional conferences to enhance their educational experience at CWRU.

Project Sunshine
Project Sunshine is a service organization that focuses on bringing a sense of normalcy to children facing medical challenges. As members of Project Sunshine, we spend the year creating events for the kids at University Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House. This year, your support will go towards purchasing holiday toys for kids in the hospital.

Research Institute for Children’s Health
At the Research Institute for Children’s Health (RICH), we are working tirelessly to find cures to childhood genetic diseases. We work to discover a patient’s “bad” or mutated gene and develop safe, effective therapies as rapidly as possible. From here, we can mimic a patient’s cells, put them in a machine, and apply thousands of FDA tested drugs for potential therapeutic properties – an ability we did not have until now. Our ultimate goal is finding cures. Financial constraints are our greatest impediments. Please give to the Research Institute for Children’s Health today!

Student-Run Health Clinic
Founded in 2011, our mission is to serve, learn, and collaborate. We are an entirely student-run organization that offers high-quality, compassionate healthcare to underserved populations within the Cleveland Community through our bimonthly Saturday Clinic held at Circle Health Services. We have community outreach programs, including a health education program at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center, a foot clinic at a local men's homeless shelter, and blood pressure screenings at local nursing homes. Our organization provides health-professional students with unique clinical practice and mentorship opportunities at the earliest stages of their careers and fosters inter-professional collaboration between future healthcare professionals.

The Kelvin Smith Library Imagine Fund
The Kelvin Smith Library is the heart of the CWRU campus – a warm and inviting space for students to study, research, collaborate and further their academic careers. Your gift ensures that our collections will continue to grow and be available to students, alumni and researchers around the world via digital access; and provide for the advancement of students’ instruction in the use of digital information in bold, new ways.

Undergraduate Diversity Collaborative Lending Library Project
UDC aims to empower students to be successful in and outside the classroom, regardless of their financial status. The UDC Lending Library Project would lend out technology resources such as laptops, graphing calculators, and iClickers to students who may not afford such material immediately.  While using materials from the lending library, students would not be constrained to a certain campus space, and they would have the freedom to take their devices out into the classroom. With this initiative, we hope to lower the resource gap between financially insecure students and their peers. Thank you for your support!

WISER - Women in Science & Engineering Roundtable
The Women in Science and Engineering Roundtable (WISER) aims to promote the inclusion and success of all women pursuing a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) - related career at Case Western Reserve University through leadership, mentorship, and outreach. WISER offers opportunities to build leadership and professional skills, take part in community outreach, and experience mentoring to support student success in male-dominated STEM fields. We empower women with strategies to face the pressures associated with pursuing STEM.

Weatherhead Graduate Women in Business
Weatherhead Women in Business seek to inspire, connect and innovate. We are tirelessly aiming to increase awareness of gender issues in the workplace and to inspire our female student body to realize that there are many resources at their fingertips to help them achieve their goals. We are always looking to connect students to successful female professionals across all industries and fields who can share their experiences and advice in and out of the workplace. We are continuously innovating ways to create unique networking events and provide female students with job opportunities through our impressive alumni network.
