#Giving2UCDay: Best Day of Giving In Ursinus History

Nearly 900 donors gave more than $120,000 in 24 hours. We call it “Bear Pride.”

Thank you to all who gave. Ursinus College surpassed the goal of 750 donors in 24 hours, achieving the highest donor participation day in Ursinus history with 892 donors. The effort was supported by 117 Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) and 128 first-time donors. We are grateful to the entire Ursinus community for their dedication and philanthropy on #Giving2UCday.

Several challenges motivated and inspired the record-breaking participation. Alumni, parent, faculty and staff giving provides vital resources for students and makes an impact on Ursinus College’s reputation and grant eligibility. Ninety-eight percent of Ursinus students receive scholarships and financial aid.
