A big AADC thank you to all who joined us thus far in moving Forward Together this Giving Tuesday. Through your support we are well on our way to raising our goal to continue to support the quality educational, social, and leadership opportunities created for our diverse and talented Douglass alumnae.  Please help us maintain the momentum for our alumnae organization by spreading the word to classmates, friends and family. Share the following link below on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or email (https://together.douglassalumnae.org/givingtuesday) and tag your former roommate, AADC Mabel’s Alumnae Mentor/Mentee, or classmates. The Annual Appeal is not on behalf of NJC, DRC, Douglass or Rutgers. The Annual Appeal is on behalf of the AADC and supports the educational, social, and leadership opportunities that connect and advance Douglass alumnae.  THANK YOU for being a vital part of our vast alumnae community.

Update Nov - 20: Match met again!  Thank you to all who have joined the AADC in moving forward together this Giving Tuesday.

Update Nov-16: We are happy to announce that the AADC has a SECOND challenge from Maureen (Moe) Phillips-Houser ‘89. Moe has offered to match an additional $5,000, dollar for dollar! Take advantage of this opportunity to make your Giving Tuesday gift!
