April 9, 2021
Slippery Rock University's fifth annual Giving Day, March 26, raised more than $320,000, exceeding organizers’ goal of $300,000, as a total of 1,340 donors contributed to this year’s campaign.
The one-day, fundraising campaign designed to encourage SRU alumni, friends and current faculty, staff and students to donate to the University has generated more than $795,000 in the last five years combined. The money supports SRU student scholarships, clubs, organizations, academic departments, athletic teams and more.
The 2021 campaign included two “challenge” gifts, both of which were met: SRU deans and members of the president's cabinet donated $20,000 after the campaign reached $100,000, and the SRU Foundation, Inc. board of directors donated $10,000 after the campaign reached 1,000 donors.
