Salve Day of Giving is Thursday, March 24
The University community will unite for the second annual Salve Day of Giving on Thursday, March 24. This new tradition is focused on a shared cause – celebrating and supporting every aspect of the student experience.
The inaugural Salve Day of Giving benefited more than 70 student clubs and organizations, which used their gifts to support many aspects of campus life, including open mic nights, speakers’ series and much more.
However, the impact of Salve Day of Giving extends beyond clubs and activities to encompass the entire student experience. Through The SALVEfund, donors can direct their support to scholarships, diversity and inclusion initiatives, the arts or academic programs.
Throughout the day, Salve Day of Giving donors can increase the impact of their gift though challenges supported by generous members of the community. If the University reaches its goal of 725 donors, an anonymous donor will make a $50,000 gift. Gifts of any size will move the University closer to meeting the challenge. Additionally, there is a special giving challenge for parents and for alumni — and a few surprises along the way.
Here on campus, Salve Day of Giving offers additional opportunities to engage. Participants can “pie” a professor or have a communal cup of coffee, each with a gift of $5 or more.
All Salve Day of Giving supporters will receive a limited-edition laptop sticker. Members of the University community can also help by sharing the link to Salve Day of Giving and encouraging friends to help unlock challenge grants. For questions, please contact Victoria Duclos, senior director of annual giving programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (401) 341-2345.
