It's last call!

We blew past every goal and challenge that was offered to us! Thanks to several members of the Alumni Association for offering challenges and matches! We've had an amazing day, and 100% of the dollars raised today go to student financial aid and scholarship awards which allow men to be Johnnies!

Let's see what else the night brings before Billy Joel comes on to sing us a song!

P.S. Here's a pic of Connor (front left, your texting buddy) and his fellow Student Ambassadors and Senior Class Gift Volunteers with the one and only Father Don.

Thanks again and Go Johnnies.

Heading for 1,639 donors!

We blew past 1,500 donors with three hours left to go!

We're now at all-time records for donors and dollars. Woohoo!

SJU has been offered an extra challenge of $2,000 if we get get to 1,639 donors (one donor for each student currently enrolled at SJU). Spread the word, and get us to 1,639!

Fun fact: We've got 43 out of 50 U.S. states represented (still need Utah, Vermont, Delaware, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina or West Virginia). Reach out to someone you know from these states!

P.S. Connor was working relentlessly! He texted a lot of folks today, and still took time to wear his walking billboard around Brother Willies! #iamconnor #givesju

Amazing! Thanks to you we have passed our goal of 1,200 donors for #GiveSJU 2018. With just a few hours remaining, we have set our sights on a new record.

This new goal includes a challenge match of an additional $10,000 in scholarship funds that will be unlocked at reaching the 1,500 donor goal! Go Johnnies!
