Defiance College Giving Tuesday 2022

85% of $10,000 goal
This campaign ended on December 02, 2022, but you can still make a gift to Defiance College by clicking here!

Today's the day to show your Purple and Gold spirit!  The DC DAY OF GIVING is an inspiring 24-hour event bringing alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends together to support Defiance College. TOGETHER, we can help make sure that every student will have life-changing educational experiences and opportunities.

Defiance College has so much to be proud of and we have made great headway in securing our future in higher education. Ove the last 5 years, we have averaged a 95% placement rate, received over $5.5 million in grant funds for STEM programs and majors, developed a relationship with the University of North Dakota to offer engineer degrees, and continue to exceed our fundraising goals. One of the most exciting future events is celebrating Defiance College's 175th Anniversary starting in 2025.

No matter where you are, this is your opportunity to join our 24 hours of giving that will impact lives for years to come. What A Difference A Day Makes!

Day of Giving Campaign Ends Tonight!

Thank You to everyone who participated in Defiance College's Day of Giving on Tuesday, November 29th! Together we have met and exceeded our goal! Our Day of Giving campaign ends tonight and we hope you will encourage your fellow alumni to consider joining the many others who have participated. Together we are continuing DC's mission of transforming the lives of our students!
