THANK YOU FOR A RECORD-SHATTERING DAY OF GIVING!

#RegentsAreResilient and yesterday was no exception! Thank you for making this year's Day of Giving an incredible one in the history of Rockford University. We are thrilled to report the preliminary results from this record-shattering day.

The generosity of our alumni, friends, faculty, staff, parents, and students has resulted in:

- An incredible total of $86,594 raised (98.5% increase over last year) to enhance opportunities for our students, and gifts are still coming in!

- A new record number of 341 donors (29% increase) coming together to support current and future Regents

- A record-shattering amount of over 85 faculty/staff donors, surpassing last years total of 67

- Gifts from all over the country and our world

It truly is amazing to see what can be accomplished when Regents from all over come together, and it is especially moving during times like this. We cannot thank you enough for your collective impact and all that you make possible for our students. Thank you.  #RegentsAreResilient #RUDayofGiving2021

What a day, and it's not even over!

It has been an incredible record-setting Day of Giving, and we cannot express our gratitude enough to everyone who has stepped up to support our students. Over 300 donors have made gifts totaling over $77,000—and the total is still on the way up!

We are excited to share that our Board of Trustees is offering one more opportunity to further your impact before the night is over. They will now donate $50 per donor, up to the next 35 donors.

There is still time to help spread the word on social media and make your gift if you haven't already. Thank you for being part of this record-setting day as we celebrate the resiliency of all Regents!
