Join us on April 12, 2017, for the second annual GivingToHoosDay as we unite our diverse Arts & Sciences community and show the University again how passionate and committed College alumni and friends are to the future success of UVA. Your gift really does make a difference.
What is GivingToHoosDay?
On Wednesday, April 12, 2017, UVA will host its second annual GivingToHoosDay, a 24-hour online fundraising event to support UVA schools and programs. Thanks to President Teresa A. Sullivan, there will again be $100,000 President’s School Challenge won through most gifts, most dollars raised, and hourly challenges.
After an historic 2016, we look to exceed last year’s efforts and come together again in support of the College & Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, and our beloved University, to be the leader on Grounds. Join us as we unite our diverse Arts & Sciences community and show the University again how passionate and committed College alumni and friends are to the future success of UVA.
We are setting our goals high this year, and we know that together, we can again show the University community how passionate and committed College alums are to the future success of UVA. Last year, we finished first for total gifts (1,124) and second to the Darden School for total dollars raised ($430,255).
Help us make history this year. Our goal: 1,500 gifts and $500,000 in one single day for the College.
Thank you for your support. Please joins us unite as one school and one University.
We are, the College.
