Highlighting the Leaders of the Pack

Good evening, Rocket Nation! Thank you all for participating in the 2024 Rocket Forward Day of Giving. You are propelling our students towards new heights and opportunities. 

With 20 hours remaining, we would like to highlight some of our leaders of the pack. 

Congrats to the Judith Herb College of Education for reaching 70% of your goal, The University of Toledo Medical Center for reaching 69% of your goal, followed by The College of Medicine and Life Sciences for reaching 67% of your goal. 

Congrats also go out to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Alumni Affiliate for securing the most amount of gifts, and to the Class of 1991 for receiving gifts from 12 of your fellow alumni.

Preston Ramsey and the College of Medicine and Life Sciences are in the lead for receiving the largest total of gifts due to their advocacy and our heat map is lighting up in midnight blue. 

There is still plenty of time to encourage others to join you in giving back so share, share, share. 

Who will be in the lead at our next check-in? Stay tuned to find out!
