Dickinson will launch its fifth annual Day of Giving Tuesday, April 23, seeking a new college record of 4,000 gifts in 24 hours.
Last year, more than 3,500 Dickinsonians united to give nearly $1 million in a single day to support Dickinson’s mission of preparing tomorrow’s difference-makers to forge a brighter future. This year, the college community is seeking to top that effort with special challenges and competitions for the Dickinson Fund, scholarships, internships, athletics teams, reunion years, parents and more.
Building on last year's successful mermaid theme, this year's symbol joins Dickinson's Red Devil and beloved mermaid icon into a merdevil to show how the day brings all Dickinsonians together. "Whether you see yourself as a Red Devil or a mermaid, whether you’re an alum, a parent, a student or a faculty or staff member," says Josh Trego, director of the Dickinson Fund, "the Day of Giving is your chance to show that above all you are a Dickinsonian—you are committed to making a difference through your work, your life and your gift fueling the future through the college."
Look for more information on special Day of Giving challenges for various members of the wider Dickinson community in the coming days. And don't forget to join in and make your gift on Tuesday, April 23, to show that great things happen when Dickinsonians come together.
