Student Philanthropy Ambassadors.
The collective support of our alumni, families and friends who give to Drew each year enriches the experience of our students. SPA is a group of student volunteers whose mission is to educate the entire community on the importance of philanthropy at Drew. We sponsor events and programming that promote awareness of donor support and express gratitude for the aspects of the Drew experience that are possible only through the generosity of others.
Our members advocate on behalf of the Office of University Advancement and represent Drew at donor and alumni events.
