UNF’s Philanthropy Club is celebrating its second year of existence this week with philanthropy week.

The Philanthropy Club will be celebrating the week of Nov. 13 by hosting a social media scavenger hunt and raising awareness about their cause at market day.

“Our All About Philanthropy Week celebrates everyone who makes UNF possible,” said senior marketing major Christina Viera. “It’s not well known among students how alumni, staff, and faculty giving makes our experience at UNF what it is.”

The social media scavenger hunt “Find Phil” will be an ongoing activity during Philanthropy Week. The Student Philanthropy Council will be at different locations on campus throughout the week. Clues to the location of the club on campus will be provided on www.facebook.com/UNFSP daily. Students will then be directed to check-in to the UNF Annual Giving Foursquare page.

Once students arrive at the mystery location they will be asked a philanthropy trivia question. If the question is answered correctly, students can spin the prize wheel. Prizes include: UNF athletics gear, free jamba Juice Smoothie cards, UNF decals, and the grand prize that is valued at $250.

To win the grand prize you must make it to all four locations at the correct times and days and like the UNF Student Philanthropy Council and the UNF Annual Fund on Facebook. The grand prize winner will need to be the first to check in on Friday, and have followed all the rules and liked the appropriate pages.

Get a head start on the scavenger hunt by like the following pages: www.facebook.com/UNFSP, www.facebook.com/UNFFund, www.foursquare.com/unfannualfund. Don’t forget to create a Foursquare and Facebook account, use a smartphone, and a valid UNF student ID.

The club will also be present on Philanthropy Day at market day, Nov. 14. Ozzie will make an appearance from 11a.m.-1p.m. and food will be provided.

“It’s all about having that spirit of giving back. It’s giving to others. It can be your time, your talent, or your treasure. It’s not all about giving monetarily but also volunteering and doing other things in your community,” said club founder and Assistant Director of Annual Giving, Claire Miller.

The Philanthropy Club will be bringing back the spirit of giving in the spring with its event “Tomorrow Made Possible” which allows students to express their gratitude to UNF donors by writing them thank you cards.
