About

April 20, 2023 is the 9th annual Gator Give Day. This year is our biggest challenge and greatest opportunity yet. 

Every day we ask Allegheny students to strive to achieve new and greater heights. Whether that is in the classroom, on the athletic field, on the stage, in their community — Allegheny asks students to think big and pursue excellence. Now it’s our turn. 


🎁 Use the online link above to make a gift

📞 Call 1-814-332-4393 or toll-free at 1-866-332-3853 between 8am - 8pm ET on April 20 to make a gift or pledge over the phone.

💌 Send a check made out to Allegheny College postmarked by Friday, April 21 with “Gator Give Day” in the memo line to Allegheny College Annual Fund, 520 N. Main Street, Box 44, Meadville, PA 16335. To have your gift included in the Gator Give Day count, please email us at gatorgiveday@allegheny.edu to let us know that your gift is on its way.

🙋‍♀️ Questions? Call our Alumni Engagement team at 814-332-4393 or toll-free at 866-332-3853, or email gatorgiveday@allegheny.edu.

🌟Each donation gets us closer to unlocking a total of $1.25 million in challenge funds!🌟


You can direct your support to make the impact that is most meaningful to you! Maybe that's to Scholarships or Gator Success Grants. Or Career Education or Study Away. Or perhaps you wish to support your Academic Department, Athletic Team, or area of Performing Arts. There are over 50 options — support what you love! Can’t narrow it down to just one area? No worries — you can split your gift between two designations!

Let's be bold and meet this challenge together!


Share the Love!
