All we can say is WOW!
As a university, more than 2,100 alumni, friends, and University of Oregon employees shattered the goal of 1,876 donors and helped us to raise more than $1.1 million in a single day, according to Rob Dow, special campaigns program manager for the Annual Philanthropy Program, which organized Giving Day 2017 on May 18.
For the Lundquist College of Business, your 102 gifts helped raise approximately $306,400 for student scholarships, program enhancements, research, Career Services, and our #1 in the nation sustainable business program.
Giving Day is the University of Oregon’s 24-hour online fundraising event, which coincides with University Day—when hundreds of students, faculty, and staff work to spruce up the UO’s 250-acre campus. The weed-pulling, mulch-spreading, flower-planting effort is a community-building tradition dating back to 1905.
