A new article on Penn’s Inspiring Impact website highlights SP2 Master of Social Work student Mayowa Fageyinbo and a unique gift that is making an impact on SP2’s signature Social Justice Scholars Program.

“There are unique challenges that come with being a first-generation graduate student. At SP2, they understand and support my dreams of making and facilitating change in communities,” says Mayowa, a member of the second cohort of Social Justice Scholars.

Nisha Hurst, W’96, PAR’25, an SP2 Board member, and Brian Hurst, W’94, PAR’25, wanted to invest in the future of the Social Justice Scholars Program. With guidance from Penn’s Office of Gift Planning, the Hursts decided to create a Charitable Remainder Trust (CRUT), which is enabling them to use appreciated securities to financially strengthen the Social Justice Scholars program in the present and long term.

“We’re grateful for the generous support that helps bring fantastic students like Mayowa to SP2,” says SP2 Dean Sara S. Bachman.
