NC State’s second annual Day of Giving will happen on Mar. 25, 2020. Are you ready?
Day of Giving, launched in 2019, surprised many Wolfpack community members by bringing in over $13M for the university in its first one-day online fundraising campaign.
Pitting the university’s colleges, office and organizations against each other in a friendly competition aimed toward the common goal of strengthening NC State’s ability to do what it does best, the day exceeded many peoples’ expectations.
Organizers modeled the campaign on peer institutions’ similar efforts, targeting totals far less than the actual result, which speaks to the fervor, prosperity and generosity of Wolfpack supporters.
How to Support Diversity and Inclusion
Offices and organizations not housed within one of NC State’s twelve colleges and divisions provide extra opportunities to give. We encourage your gifts to all of the university groups with which you have ties.
But don’t forget to Designate for Diversity along with your other chosen recipients. Consider giving a percentage of your donation to support diversity and inclusion on Day of Giving. Alum of the College of Engineering? Former AYA ambassador in the African American Cultural Center? Former peer educator with The Movement? Consider allocating some of your funds for a gift to each.
