Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 15 and Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019 for The University of Toledo's Day of Giving, Rocket Forward: You Launch Lives.

Last year, the generosity of more than 3,150 alumni, students, faculty and staff members, and friends of the University raised more than $717,000. Collectively, your contributions changed lives!

In 2019, we are counting on everyone in Rocket Nation to join our 36-hour fundraising campaign to help students launch their UToledo education and complete their degrees; to help faculty members continue research that impacts lives; to fund new drug therapies and medical advancements that improve patient care; and to support many UToledo programs across campus.  

UToledo Employees: Payroll deduction

Faculty and staff at the University may choose to make their gift via payroll deduction anytime between now and Oct. 16 by contacting Anna Mosler at anna.mosler@utoledo.edu or 419.530.5610.
