Vanderbilt’s fourth annual Giving Day is scheduled for April 4 and offers the entire Vanderbilt community a chance to join together to “give for the gold” and make the university stronger.
The campaign will build on the successes of the previous three years, as Vanderbilt strives to reach a record-setting goal of 7,800 donors in just 24 hours. Last year, more than 7,000 people made contributions of all sizes totaling nearly $6 million. Gifts large and small will combine again this year to help fund things such as scholarships, study-abroad opportunities, outfitting classrooms with the latest technology, and much more.
In addition to making a gift, alumni and friends are encouraged to spread the “give for the gold” spirit by posting to social media using the hashtag #give4thegold and sharing the excitement of the day with their networks.
Download the Mr. C augmented reality app and enter the social media contest for a chance to win a $50 gift card from Barnes & Noble at Vanderbilt.
