PPIA has much to be grateful for in 2016!
For 35 years, we have been committed to promoting the leadership development of underrepresented groups in public service. We moved our national office to the Humphrey School of Public Affairs in Minneapolis in April. In July, we celebrated our 35th anniversary with a gala in Washington DC honoring Reverend and State Senator Clementa Pinckney (Princeton PPIA,’94). We are serving more students than ever through our Public Service Weekend regional conferences and a new Junior Summer Institute at the Humphrey School in summer 2017. Lastly, students continue to demonstrate interest in the Junior Summer Institutes, we have seen an increase in the number applicants this year.
Today, we ask you to support PPIA by investing in our work between now and #GivingTuesday, November 29, 2016. It’s your time. This is your opportunity to give thanks and give back to support the dreams of future participants in our programs.
Our #GivingTuesday campaign aims to raise $5,000. All contributions will advance the work of the PPIA Fellowship program.
Contribute to the organization that believes in the future of public service!
Support students’ opportunity for a promising future!
#GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power nonprofits, businesses, corporations, families, and individuals to transform how people participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and help create a better world.
