Sample Post: I gave up my morning Starbucks (or insert your own vice) to participate in the Proud to be Valpo Challenge, and my gift was matched with $25 from a generous alum! What are you going to give up to support Valpo today? Give today at valpo.edu/proudtobevalpo and share this status to show your pride in Valpo. #valpoday
Sample Post: Did you know that if an increased percentage of alumni give just $10 to Valpo every year, our U.S. News and World Report ranking will increase? I participated in the Proud to be Valpo Challenge today to increase the value of my degree. Give today at valpo.edu/proudtobevalpo and share this status to show your pride in Valpo. #valpoday
Here are some tweets you can share to help get the word out:
a. Email a picture with your caption to Alumni@valpo.edu, and we will post it for you.
b. Send an email to your friends. Here is a sample message:
As you have probably heard, Valparaiso University is challenging alumni and friends to show their pride in Valpo by participating in Valpo’s first-ever day of giving, “Proud to be Valpo.” I made my gift this morning at valpo.edu/proudtobevalpo. It took just a minute, and I am writing to ask that you give a gift of any amount today to support Valpo. Your gift can be matched too — $50 will be added to the first 600 gifts for a total of $30,000 in matching gifts. So be sure to give early to make your gift count! And, if there’s anybody I forgot on this message, please forward it to them. Thanks!
