what You Need To Know about FLASHanthropy


WHO WE ARE

FLASHanthropy is an official Kent State University student organization dedicated to educating students about the importance of philanthropy and the role that it plays in the day-to-day operation of the university. FLASHashanthropists are a group of energetic student volunteers who lead the way in supporting the Pay It Flash Forward Scholarship, as well as any other areas of the university. FLASHashanthropists are involved in a wide range of activities, including:

  • Educating peers about philanthropy and its impact on non-profit organizations such as Kent State

  • Motivating fellow students to make gifts to support Kent State
  • Gaining valuable, resumé-quality volunteer experience and professional references
  • Planning FLASHanthropy outreach efforts
  • Providing feedback to Kent State Institutional Advancement staff

FLASHanthropy is led by students like you: hard-working students looking for a way to ease the financial burden of paying tuition. FLASHanthropy is open to all students, and welcomes anyone who wants to make a difference in their own life and the lives of others.

WHY WE NEED YOU
FLASHanthropy is your opportunity to participate in philanthropy. Since 2007, FLASHanthropy has raised more than $100,000 from more than 2,500 generous donors! This money has been combined to create the Pay It Flash Forward Scholarship: an endowed scholarship that currently awards three, $1,250 scholarships each year to eligible Kent State undergraduates!

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU
Your gift helps provide more aid for students just like you. Whether you choose to support the Pay It Flash Forward Scholarship or any other school, college, department or major, we encourage you to visit the Student Financial Aid website today and apply online for the scholarship!

YOU CAN AFFORD TO HELP!
Trust us - we understand that money is tight! But consider this: if all Kent State undergraduates contributed just $20 each year, we'd have an additional $340,000 in new scholarship money each year
