LC Day of Giving a success!
March 14, 2019
A huge thank you to the LC campus community for supporting the fourth annual Day of Giving.
Because of you, we surpassed our goal of 2,019 gifts, from faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, and friends from all three schools. With our success, we unlocked a $100,000 match from our generous donors.
Staff and faculty are an integral part of the day’s success – thank you for your amazing support of LC students!
Results for our on-campus special challenges below:
• Scott Fletcher, Dean of the Graduate School of Education and Counseling, pledged to increase his annual gift by $500 if at least 50% of GSEC faculty and staff participate in this year’s Day of Giving. 45 percent made a gift.
• Jennifer Johnson, Dean of the Law School, and Bruno pledged $1,000 to the Law School’s Annual Fund after 100 gifts are made to the law school. Success! The Law School received 182 gifts.
• President Wim Wiewel matched all gifts made by faculty and staff on Day of Giving (up to $7,500). Success! $7,500 goal reached.
• In addition, the Board of Alumni will contribute $50 for every CAS senior who makes a gift on Day of Giving. 99 senior gifts made, for a total of $4,950!
Many department heads made their own challenges and were an integral part of our success. If you had a challenge that wasn’t listed above, please check in with the person who made the challenge.
We’re still counting gifts, but check the Day of Giving website next week for our final number of gifts made!
