About

Clarkson University's Day of Giving is our day to show the world what we see every day on our campus; big things happen when the Clarkson community comes together and supports each other and our future!   

Be a part of this 24-hour celebration and help inspire each other to support Clarkson University students, faculty and programs. This 24-hour online giving challenge is an opportunity for alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff to come together by giving to the area they are most passionate about. 

Your gift will have an immediate impact by supporting safety and wellness measures, financial aid, technology, faculty development and student programming within each of the schools on campus. Collectively, our community provides Clarkson with the resources to be flexible in meeting needs as they arise and ensure that all students have meaningful opportunities to continue to grow and succeed in whatever paths they choose.
