From Thanks to Giving: Helping Students in Need

This campaign ended on November 28, 2023, but you can still make a gift to University of Southern Maine by clicking here!

At the heart of Thanksgiving lies the spirit of gratitude, a time to reflect on the blessings in our lives and appreciate the abundance we enjoy. But "From Thanks to Giving" is not just about counting our own blessings; it's about sharing them with those who need it most. This Thanksgiving season, we invite you to join us in a special endeavor: helping students in need.

Every day, students at USM face unexpected crises that jeopardize their ability to continue their education. These crises can range from sudden medical expenses to family emergencies, and more. We believe that education should be a path to opportunity, not a roadblock to success, and this is where you can make a difference.

Our campaign encourages a shift from gratitude to generosity. Instead of simply giving thanks, we're inviting you to give back. 

We encourage you to make a donation to the Student Emergency Fund, the Oakhurst Campus Food Pantry, USM Health Services, USM Counseling Services, and/or the Promise Scholars Student Emergency Fund. With your support for these funds, we can be the lifeline that these students need and ensure they stay on the path toward their dreams and aspirations.
