SRU's Giving Day raises more than $54,000

March 27, 2018

Slippery Rock University's second annual Giving Day, March 26, was a resounding success. Organized by the SRU Foundation, Inc., the second annual Giving Day campaign, designed to encourage SRU alumni, friends and current faculty, staff and students to donate to the University, attracted 693 donors who contributed more than $54,000.

Donors could designate their gift to benefit specific areas of campus, such as student organizations and academic programs.

This year's campaign exceeded its goal of doubling last year's 134 donors and nearly $24,000 in gifts.

Two "challenges" were also met during Giving Day, resulting in two anonymous contributions, totaling $5,000, for the Student Support Fund. One gift of $2,500 was made in honor of the first 134 Giving Day donors and another $2,500 was committed when 268 donors pledged. Overall, a total of $22,000 was contributed to the Student Support Fund.
