One of the things I love about Suffolk is that it’s a community that cares deeply and gives generously.

I watch our students give their best efforts to learn more, and our faculty and staff give their all to help them do it. And our alumni, community partners, and friends give their time and resources to help Suffolk thrive.

This week, we all have the opportunity to give just a little more. From April 4-8, we are celebrating Suffolk’s Week of Giving. This year’s theme is Moving Forward Together, and your gift, whatever its size, will help us do just that.

Each day is dedicated to one particular school or program. Today, we focus on the College of Arts & Sciences; Tuesday, the Law School; Wednesday, Athletics; Thursday, the Sawyer Business School, when we’ll also celebrate the 75th anniversary of our BSBA program. Friday is “Give to What You Love Day,” our chance to support our favorite Suffolk scholarship, center, club, or cause. Gifts can be made here or by texting SUGIVES to 71-777.

Together, if we can raise $100,000, the Suffolk University Board of Trustees will generously match our gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. That means our gifts can double in impact.

So please join me this week and give back to a University that gives so much to our community, our Commonwealth, and our world. Let’s move forward together.

With appreciation for all you do,
