What a Difference a Day Makes!

139% of $75,000 goal
This campaign ended on November 06, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Valdosta State University by clicking here!

"What a Difference a Day Makes!" is the first annual Giving Day campaign hosted by Valdosta State University. Our goal this year was to raise $50,000 to aid in areas such as student scholarships, Blazer Athletics, Performing Arts, and EVERY area in our multifaceted institution. Due to the overwhelming support of the VSU community, we reached our goal at 12:36 pm. We have decided to challenge VSU supporters to help us reach a new goal of $75,000.

Join Blazer Nation in this day of VSU giving and pride by donating back to VSU. Any gift, no matter the size, has the potential to cause change. 

Feel as if you have more to give? Give BIG and create a matching or challenge gift on this page to dare your friends, family, and Blazer community to a giving competition!

In just one day, we believe that the VSU community has the power to change the lives of countless students. Every gift counts and remember...Blazers Give BIG! 

Thank You Blazer Nation!

SGA President, Melissa Wolfe, is STOKED by these giving day totals!! Thank you Blazer Nation for your support and generosity. We have less than 30 minutes left...How far do you think we can go beyond our goal?
