AMHERST, N.Y. -- Daemen College will hold its third annual Day of Giving on April 10, a 24-hour campaign that unites the college community in raising support for Daemen students and the institution.
On Daemen Day of Giving, alumni, faculty, staff, trustees, and friends of the college will have the opportunity to make a gift online for the one-day special fundraising effort. Gifts will go toward student scholarships, academic and co-curricular programs, and facility enhancements at the college.
“Daemen Day of Giving is a great way to engage our college community to come together and support our students and the college by making a gift to this daylong campaign,” said Craig Harris, vice president for institutional advancement. “Our goal is to build on the momentum we have created since we first launched this fundraising effort and to make this year an even greater success.”
The 2019 Daemen Day of Giving will officially start at 12 a.m. on Wednesday, April 10. Real time updates on the number of gifts received will be posted online throughout the day. Every gift will count toward the overall goal of 175 gifts for the one-day campaign, which will include challenge gifts to help boost participation.
Members of the college community will be encouraged to use the official hashtag #daemendayofgiving to raise awareness about this special initiative.
