Giving Day is a 24-hour ‘Day of Giving’ campaign. This event unites alumni, parents, students, faculty, and staff from all over the world. Our collective efforts during these 24 hours create a lifetime of impact! 

A message from Marywood President Sister Mary Persico, IHM '69, Ed.D. regarding Giving Day 2023!


Giving Day Challenge Gifts

Giving Day Challenge Gifts can be rolled out throughout the day to inspire others to get engaged and give.

Challenges could include:

Setting a challenge goal: “If we reach 50 donors, I will donate $5,000”
Making a class challenge: “If 25 alumni from the class of 1970 donate, I will donate an additional $1,000”
Making a social challenge: “I will make a gift of $1,000 to the fund choice of the Giving Day Volunteer with the most Facebook shares.”

We are looking for Pacers willing to encourage others to participate in Giving Day 2023 with their challenge gifts! If you would like to offer a special Giving Day Challenge Gift, please contact the Office of University Advancement at development@marywood.edu
