What is Maryville Giving Day?
Maryville Giving Day is a 24-hour event designed to celebrate the University and inspire students, faculty, alumni and friends to make a gift to the Maryville School, College or program that is most meaningful to them.

Throughout the entire day on April 2, 2024, we encourage the Maryville community to come together and show its support. All gifts — no matter the size or designation — will count toward Maryville Giving Day and help unlock additional challenge dollars.

Why should I participate in Maryville Giving Day?
When you give and when others give, you help to move Maryville forward.
That’s what Maryville Giving Day is all about. It is one collective day for the entire Maryville community to join as one to make great things happen.

And on Maryville Giving day, your gift can have an even bigger impact! Generous donors have agreed to support matching gifts and challenges throughout the day. Find out more by clicking on the “Challenges” page above!
