What's your vision for 2015 and beyond? Stephanie Staidle, Georgetown College Class of 2002 and founder of The Right Brain Entrepreneur, brings her dynamic Vision Board Workshop to the NorCal Hoyas. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn WHY a personal vision board is essential to goal setting and its basis in the science and neurology of the brain -- not just some hocus-pocus art making. You'll discover how most of us have been trained to approach our goals and future in a limited way and that by engaging ‘right brain’ processes and unleashing inner creativity, there is a natural expansion of effectiveness, problem-solving skills, and the ability to overcome challenges. No previous art experience required!

October Giving Challenge for Georgetown Young Alumni in Northern California - All Gifts Matched Up to $100,000 until October 31!


Dear Georgetown Young Alum in Northern California, 

We currently serve as the Northern California Campaign co-chairs and have been involved with Georgetown for quite some time in various leadership and volunteer roles. As parents of young alumni, we know that engaging the younger generation of Hoyas—YOU—is critical for the future of Georgetown.

To inspire you to make a difference for Georgetown right now, as campaign chairs we are matching your gift dollar for dollar up to $100,000 until October 31. This includes a full match of any multi-year pledge you make. Every gift makes a difference, and we are asking for your help to make a great and lasting impact with our collective philanthropy.

At this critical juncture in Georgetown's future, we believe raising money for scholarships is the single most pressing and significant issue we have ever tackled. Cost should never be a prohibiting factor to attending Georgetown; we have the power to change this, one student at a time.

Georgetown is in the final stretch of For Generations to Come, the largest fundraising campaign in our history. Ensuring your support today is crucial to our future success. Your gift will help shape the legacy that this campaign leaves for future generations.

Double the impact of your gift by supporting Georgetown today or any time before October 31.
