Marshall University alumni and supporters will have an opportunity to make their mark on the university during the second-ever day of giving across two days April 26-27.
Hosted by the Marshall University Foundation, this event is an opportunity for the Marshall family to join together and make a lasting impact on the students of Marshall and to help shape the future of the institution. Beginning at noon on Wednesday, April 26, Marshall’s Day of Giving will feature 36 hours of giving thanks, with stories, updates and interactive elements throughout the event on the Foundation and Marshall University social media feeds and websites.
Marshall University alumni and supporters are encouraged to participate in this transformational day by visiting givingday.marshall.edu.
“Philanthropy is near and dear to my heart,” said Marshall University President Brad D. Smith. “It is an opportunity to give back and support the things we love. On April 26-27, I encourage the entire Marshall family to come together and support our great university on Marshall’s Day of Giving as we recognize those who support our students, our campus and our mission through giving.”
While Marshall has participated in national giving days in the past, this will be the second time the university has set aside its own day dedicated to garnering financial support and highlighting those who give back to the university. The previous day of giving, which took place in October 2021, raised nearly $80,000 for the university. This year’s goal is $100,000.
