We’re gearing up to celebrate the fifth annual Glow Big Red! On Feb. 15-16 from noon to noon (central time), we’re celebrating 24 Hours of Husker Giving — and we’re counting on you! Our fundraising will specifically support the Jack R. Snider UNL Band Alumni Association Scholarships.
The Jack R. Snider Scholarship is awarded to current members of the Cornhusker Marching Band who are non-music majors. Recipients demonstrate leadership (formal or informal), volunteerism and integrity. They are a role model for their section and the band and exemplify what it means to be the Pride of All Nebraska.
Last year, we received 23 gifts totaling $2,550 and made a big difference! Check out a few impact stories from previous scholarship recipients.
You’ll uplift Husker students and make a meaningful impact in their lives when you:
- Give: Join your fellow Huskers by making a gift of $5 or more!
- Share: Share your Husker pride on social media, using the hashtag #GlowBigRed; and
- Glow: Light up your room, home, or business to let your Husker pride shine.
We’ve set an ambitious goal of $4,000 and we’re confident we’ll meet this goal together! Thanks to band alum, Scott Washburn, all gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1,000. Make your gift ahead of time at glowbigred.unl.edu and still have it count toward our big day.
Let’s Glow All In for Glow Big Red, Huskers!
P.S. Make a gift of $60 or more by noon (central time), on Feb. 16 and the NU Foundation send you a reversible Husker bucket hat! Perfect to wear with your alumni uniform for the Reunion Weekend.
