24-Hour Roar

This campaign ended on November 30, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Dakota Wesleyan University by clicking here!


The Day of Giving is a 24-hour online campaign to come together and raise funds for scholarships. Last year, the campaign had 262 donors raising $34,386. This year, we are cutting the time of the campaign by 12 hours and increasing our donor goal to 275! We need every Tiger and every roar! #FeeltheRoar
