Shepherd's fifth annual Day of Giving! 

For 24 hours on March 6, the Ram family comes together to support the programs, scholarships, and experiences that make Shepherd so special. 

One of the best parts of #ShepGives is how many ways there are to support our students. Whether you give to your favorite academic department, student organization, athletic team, or campus initiative, you ensure we can provide our students with the resources they need to succeed.

Another great part of #ShepGives is how easy it is to amplify the impact of your gift! Watch for challenges throughout the day and make your donation to help Shepherd unlock those gifts.

The goal is ambitious – to raise $75,000 in support of Shepherd University in one day. Please join us by making a gift to an area of Shepherd that you 💙. 

We are investing in the lives of students, and every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. There is no time to wait. Join us and donate to #ShepGives today!

To support Day of Giving by check, make the check payable to the Shepherd University Foundation and put Day of Giving 2024 in the memo line. Mail it to the Shepherd University Foundation, PO Box 5000, Shepherdstown, WV 25443. 

Final Challenge has been Unlocked!

Our final challenge was unlocked: Over 25 alumni donated between the hours of 4-6 to unlock the SUAA Board Gift of $500 to the Shepherd Fund. 

There are still 5 1/2 hours left, so please continue to encourage friends and family to give. Our student organizations and clubs are still reaching for 20 donors to earn their free pizza from Dominos.
