Mississippi Gives Day

We hope you received our Christmas email. If you haven’t donated yet, please consider doing so on Mississippi Gives Day, Wednesday, December 10.

Mississippi Gives Day is a powerful, 24-hour, statewide giving event. On this day, everyone in the state of Mississippi is encouraged to donate online to a charity of his or her choice. The goal of Mississippi Gives Day is to show a sign of unified support to the nonprofits that protect and nurture our communities and improve the quality of life in Mississippi.

William Carey University is participating in this inaugural fundraising drive. We hope you will give through the William Carey University giving page http://wmcarey.edu/advancement

Thank you in advance for all your scholarship support on December 10 and every day.

Annissa Iler explains to scholarship donors at Carey that she would not be able to continue her education without financial assistance after a tragic accident last spring. Annissa’s husband was killed instantly by a drunk driver, and she was seriously injured. She has returned to Carey after months of physical therapy, but is unable to continue the part-time waitressing job she held prior to the accident. Her scholarship allows her to continue her dream of becoming an elementary school educator and the first person in her family to graduate from college.

Join the hundreds of other scholarship donors at Carey and contribute to the scholarship endowment that provides funds for Annissa and the many other scholarship recipients who are working hard to fulfill their educational dreams.
