Social workers advocate for people in almost every area of society, they make a real difference in the world. One dollar from as many participants as possible is our goal; we hope to reach a goal of one million donors.
Every year many undergraduate social work students who want to make a difference in their communities and world cannot do so because they are unable to finish their degrees. They see social work as a vehicle to their ability to making an impact where it is needed, but they experience financial challenges that have them dropping out of school because they cannot pay for their last classes, have run out of aid, owe fees, or simply have to balance life responsibilities that does not allow them to finish their degree. This project aims to actively put students front and center in the debate about making a change to the world in which we live. Consider donating this week’s coffee money or spare change to help students make a difference. We need you to help us help others.
We truly want to get 1 million people to give $1.00 to help our students with financial need based scholarships to enable them to graduate. The minimum you can give online via this campaign is $10.00 due to the vendor used. To give less than $10 or if you do not want to submit large amounts online, please send a check or money order to: IU Social Work, c/o IU Foundation, P. O. Box 6460, Indianapolis, IN 46206-6460 and write in the memo line " Pocket Change for Social Change".
There is a call for more social workers and our students are ready to respond to this call. With school shootings, war crimes, suicides, increase mental health challenges, need for more advocates for change, and other countless social ills there is evidence for more social workers. Many, however, are not able to respond as they are struggling financially to finish their degrees and enter the workforce. They are unable to register for their last courses, have holds on their records, have ran out of federal aid, and struggle to pay the bursar bill. Let's help them overcome these hurdles and bring about social change. Please Give Today, We need your help! Press the Donate Now button or write your check today.
