A Special Kind of Birthday Gift

February 20, 2020

This time last year, we were celebrating Tony’s 84th birthday with a goal of raising $84,000.

Not only did you meet that goal – you exceeded it!

And due to your generosity and partnership, we were able to double our enrollment from 6 to 15 scholars… offering more than twice as many scholarships in the 2019 academic year. Wow!

Check out just a few of the ways that the Campolo Scholars are already making a difference:

  • Aidan Link leads a growing prayer ministry that is mobilizing students across the Eastern University campus.
  • Drew Kanzler is interning at the Salvation Army twice a week.
  • Jaclyn Favarosa is leading an effort to recruit and interview next year’s student chaplains at Eastern.
  • Jabre Harris is preaching a series of sermons at his home church.
  • Shavay Ellis will preside over a church service next Sunday morning.

Because of your encouragement, this year we’ve set an even higher goal in celebration of Tony’s 85th birthday:

We hope to provide $100,000 in scholarship funding for these and future Campolo Scholars. And a generous friend of Tony has offered to match $50,000 in gifts to make this possible!

Can you say Happy Birthday to Tony in this special way today?
