Dear [Friend's Name],

Rhodes College’s All Roads Lead to Rhodes Annual Fund Challenge returns Wednesday, June 24! I hope you will join me during the 2-day challenge, maximize your impact, and support Rhodes students’ limitless potential by becoming an Advocate.

By now, you’re wondering how you can help us reach our goal of 750 gifts in two days and I am so glad you asked! Below are a few ways to become an Advocate:

GIVE: Make your gift online on June 24 or 25, rhodes.edu/gift. Throughout the two days, several alumni will be matching donations, making your gift go that much further.

SHARE: Spread the word about All Roads Lead to Rhodes. Post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram to share why you’ve given to Rhodes. Over the next several weeks, the Rhodes Annual Fund team will send you ideas and suggested language to use, so don’t worry if you’re not a social media influencer (yet!).  Make sure you tag @RhodesCollege and use #AllRhodes.

CHALLENGE: Challenge others to give, and ask your personal network to join you in making a gift as well. On All Roads Lead to Rhodes, our community will come together to help make tomorrow brighter.

PERSONAL PLEA: Make a video sharing your own “Road to Rhodes” and why you choose to support the college today. You’ll be able to post it to our giving page and share it on your own social platforms, encouraging others to do the same.

By coming together, we all inspire life-changing opportunities.

Two Days. One Goal. #AllRhodes

Thank you!
