Giving Days are a very popular and effective way to drive donor engagement, attract new donors, and engage major givers. They are not only a powerful way to foster excitement about giving; they provide a valuable tool to help highlight the importance and impact of donor support. In addition to generating significant donors and dollars, Giving Days also help encourage collaboration among schools, units, and departments while strengthening a culture of philanthropy on and off campus. Join us at The Citadel in Charleston, SC to learn best practices from three institutions for running a successful Giving Day.  Sponsored by GiveCampus.



Mindy Highley, Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations & Development, Morehead State University

Morehead State University won the 2017 CASE District III Grand Award for their #MSUDay  24-Hour Challenge. MSU will present how they used a minimal budget of $1000, a team of 5 staff members and a matching gift challenge to reach fundraising and engagement goals.

Michele Cauley, Associate Vice President, Marketing, Communications & Events, Clemson University

Learn how one of the nation’s top 25 public universities, on their inaugural Give Day, raised over $903,000, continued the momentum of the 10-year Clemson Capital campaign, garnered new donors and increased engagement.
