Chirp about #SagehenImpact every year on 4/7!

Check out this year's 4/7 #SagehenImpact Day recognizing and honoring the good deeds being done by members of the Pomona community and featuring special livestreams with President Starr and Professor Nicole Weekes.

On Sagehen Social Media

Whenever, wherever and however you choose to make change happen, share it with the Pomona community on April 7 during our annual Celebration of #SagehenImpact! Chirp about the difference you or fellow Sagehens are making in the world every day. Use a 4/7 Selfie Sign, or any other photo you'd like to share, and post a quick message with hashtag #SagehenImpact in the Alumni Facebook Group, Parents & Families Facebook Group, on Instagram or on Twitter. Then come back throughout the day to see what others are doing to change the world for the better!

Across the U.S. and the Globe

Pomona volunteer led regional 4/7 community service events take place each year as part of the celebration thanks to impact-driven Sagehen volunteers. Whether helping at a food bank, fixing up an elementary school, or sprucing up a park, Sagehens are making the world a better place from one side of the globe to the other!

On Campus

The campus community comes together on 4/7 to celebrate #SagehenImpact as well. The event features tasty food, fun activities, volunteer information and the opportunity for community members to share and learn how others are making an impact while at Pomona.

Through 4/7 Impact Gifts

4/7 provides a unique opportunity to connect with campus partners and focus on areas of Pomona that are in immediate need of financial support. In years past, 4/7 fundraising has focused on internships, the Student Emergency Grant Fund, the Draper Center for Community Partnerships, the EmPOWER Center, the Alumni Scholarship Fund and others.

100% of each donation goes directly to support the cause to which it's given, and it's always exciting to see the generosity of alumni and Pomona parents who want to help boost giving by offering gift matching or unlocking bonus gifts.
