About

Today is Stevenson’s third annual Day of Giving! 

For 24-hours, members of our SU community will come together to make a difference in the lives of our students. It is a day when our collective spirit shines and we celebrate what makes our university so special. 

Our goal is to have at least 250 members of our community make a gift to Stevenson University in just one day. We hope you will join us by making a gift to an area of Stevenson that you πŸ’š. 

To kick off the day, a proud SU parent and member of the President's Advisory Council is challenging all of us to support what we love at Stevenson. When at least 250 members of the SU community join her in making a gift in the next 24-hours, she will donate $15,000!  

Several other generous members of our community are offering matching gifts and challenges that will be posted throughout the day. Your contribution can unlock their generosity! So, we're calling on you to contribute what you can. Every gift counts. Become a Stevenson advocate! Share your gift across your social networks using the hashtag #SUpportWhatYouLove. Inspire your friends and peers with a matching gift or a challenge. Create a personal plea and tell your friends and family why Stevenson students are worth investing in.

Becoming a sustaining partner at Stevenson by creating a monthly installment gift is a great way to budget your philanthropy and provide continuous support for the university! We all have our Netflix or Spotify subscriptions and giving to SU can be just as easy! Simply enter the amount of your donation and select, "Yes! Please make my gift recurring." at checkout.

The 2021 Senior Class Giving Campaign and the Class of 2020 Giving Campaign are currently running through Friday, April 30. If you would like to make a gift to one of those campaigns today on SU’s Day of Giving, we invite you to visit their pages linked above and give directly through the respective campaign. At noon tomorrow, we will include all gifts made to the class pages in our totals for giving day.
