About

ON APRIL 7, 2022, BLOOMSBURG UNIVERSITY WILL KICK OFF OUR INAUGURAL 1867 MINUTES OF GIVING CHALLENGE!

Running for 1867 minutes from Thursday, April 7 at 8:00 am through Friday, April 8 at 3:07 pm, we are counting on you to join the BU community by making a gift to support the academic or athletic programs you care about most and show our Huskies that we have their backs.

Now, more than ever, Huskies need your support. No matter the amount, every gift provides the vital resources our students need to be successful.

We’re counting on the incredible BU community of alumni, students, family, faculty, and friends to help us reach our goal of 500 donors for this year's 1867 Minutes of Giving Challenge!

MAXIMIZE YOUR GIFT! With challenges taking place all day and hourly on BU’s 1867 Minutes of Giving, it’s easy to amplify your gift! 

WHY 1867? The number 1867 has great significance in the Bloomsburg University community: it is the year Henry Carver, Bloomsburg University’s first president, laid the foundation for the building that bears his name.

So let’s go ALL IN. ALL IN for students. ALL IN for excellence. ALL IN for Huskies.


Thank you for making a difference when it makes all the difference!
