About

We Soar!

Thank you to everyone for the greatest day of donor support in University of Dayton history! 7,499 people made a gift, and the Class of ’23 led the way with 208 donors. Overall, 565 students made a gift to support UD.

Together, we raised $3.5 million for current and future Flyers and kicked off our $400 million comprehensive campaign — We Soar! 

The campaign launch was a dramatic event created by UD faculty and staff, and performed by students. It was livestreamed to Flyers around the world, and if you didn’t see it, you still can. You’ll be glad you did. Watch the launch event now. You can also view the We Soar launch video at the top of this page.
