Dear I-House Friends,
During this time of gratitude, we want to send our thanks to you for being a part of I-House by sharing your inspiring stories, participating in our events, or making a gift to support our mission.
This has been an incredible year for I-House as we celebrate our 85th birthday — we completed the transformation of our Dining Commons; launched our 85 Stories for 85 Years initiative; and we’re on track to give a record number of financial aid awards, so more deserving scholars can experience life under the dome. It’s all thanks to you, our community.
We are so grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support from our alumni and friends. Most recently, donors came out in droves for the 24 hours of Big Give at Berkeley. Our donors contributed $27,162 to International House — the largest number of online gifts we have ever received in a single day! We also won a $1,000 bonus in a social media contest for the thought bubble selfie pictured below.
By coming together on this season of giving, we are able to achieve far more than we ever could alone. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful community of residents, alumni, parents, and friends. Thank you for helping us to build a strong foundation for our future.
We’d also like to thank everyone who “shared the love” on social media with Big Give photos. Check out our Big Give photos on Facebook.
We wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
