The harvest season leads many of us to reflect on all we have, and all that we can share with others. This year, the Reacting Consortium is asking you to consider a donation to our non-profit efforts leading up to Giving Day, 2022: Tuesday, November 29.

This year, our theme is Re-Mark-ing on the Past, and it is dedicated to giving in honor of MarkCarnes' term as Executive Director. We want to keep what Mark Carnes started going. Please give this year in honor of the years he nurtured, sustained, and supported everything Reacting does now. Help keep Reacting growing.

Additionally, we have received the offer of a matching grant from a generous, anonymous donor, for the value of up to $5000, so it's an especially  great time to give, as your donation will effectively be doubled! Giving is easy; just scroll down to enter your information.

The Reacting Consortium works to help instructors and develop new games in order to support effective, engaged learning in a broad variety of ways. Our April 2021 fundraising drive focused on raising funds to support new Reactors from HBCUs and other minority-serving institutions attending  Reacting Workshops. Our goal for the fundraiser was $2,000.00, and with the help of this community, we blew past that goal. 

As of November 10, 2022, we've supported ten different faculty members with free registration to our virtual or in-person training events, and we have funds left to continue this good work going into 2023.

Whether you're a student who loved your Reacting class, an intrigued parent, or a professor who has long used Reacting to inspire: please consider a donation to help keep this innovative pedagogy going and growing. Your gift makes a difference! 

A special thank you to all of our donors.
