About

As the John Carroll community wraps up celebrating Founders’ Day with a virtual event the night of April 19th, Day of Giving commences! This online fundraising event brings together the entire JCU community — students, alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and the local community — in support of the University. Reflect on your own JCU experience and GIVE TO WHAT YOU LOVE! 

Our goal is to rally 1,886 donors between 8:30 p.m. on April 19 and 11:59 p.m. on April 20, 2021!

Let’s come together as Blue Streaks to showcase what we love about John Carroll! Day of Giving is about the strength of our collective impact — every person and every gift counts. Gifts of all sizes make a difference and you can make a gift to anything you love at JCU — a program, sports team or student organization. Support at this critical time has a powerful and immediate impact.

Make your impact at John Carroll University by encouraging your classmates, family, and friends to support JCU's Day of Giving 2021.

Make your Gift

  • Click GIVE NOW! It's time to rally our JCU community and meet the challenge of 1,886 donors in honor of our founding year.

Encourage Others to Give

  • Leverage your gift with a Match or Challenge. Challenges and matching gifts help inspire others in the JCU community to give back for JCU Day of Giving. Matching gifts are made on a per-donor basis (e.g. I will match up to $500 for the next $500 that is donated). Challenges are milestone-based (e.g. if 100 people make a donation, I will give $250).
