About

Our Tradition: Gator Give Day

April 22, 2021 is the 7th annual Gator Give Day. This Allegheny tradition is our chance to unite as a community, to support our students, and to invest in their futures. 

Celebrate the shared experiences that unite Gators across miles and years. Join the Allegheny community around the world in giving back. And say to our students, in one resounding voice, that we stand with them. And that they are part of something big, something special.

Because we are stronger together


Allegheny's Board of Trustees wants to do something special in honor of the graduating Class of 2021 and you can make it possible. When you participate with a Gator Give Day donation, no matter the size, the Board has pledged to make an additional $100 contribution for each of the first 2,021 donors -- for a total of $202,100 -- to support the greatest needs of the College.

Our goal this year is 2,021 gifts, in honor of the graduating Class of 2021. Let's work together to make this happen!

Athletics Challenge


As a new twist this year, athletics programs are competing for additional funding, thanks to a $10,000 match from Trustee Kevin ‘84 and Lisa Fiedor ‘84 Baird. The athletics programs that beat all other teams in achieving or surpassing their Gator Give Day goals will not only be awarded bragging rights, but will also receive additional “trophy” funds.  Will you help your team come out on top?
