The Campaign for Whitworth: The Whitworth Serves Initiative

Whitworth Serves was an ambitious initiative to gather information from alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff who give their time in service of others. These hours of service were reported between Oct. 2014 and Oct. 2017. Stories of service shared included alumni volunteering for their alma mater on Whitworth Regional Chapter leadership teams or reunion committees; acknowledging work participants are already doing in their home communities, from providing meals to the underprivileged, assisting in a child’s classroom, or serving on the board of a local church or non-profit organization; or undertaking a new volunteer endeavor and/or joining fellow Whitworthians in their region during an annual national day of service.

Over the three years of the Whitworth Serves program, more than 700 Whitworthians reported just over 92,500 hours of service, worth $2.5 million. Join us each September as we continue to share stories of service as part of our annual Servestember month.

By serving others together, we can continue to live out Whitworth’s mission and create lasting change in our communities.
