Butler Day of Giving

Thank you, Bulldogs! 

 

Over the course of 1,855 minutes, Bulldogs came together to raise 1,459 gifts, totaling $471,107. Your generosity has made an impact on current and future Butler students. 

 

Thank you to our challenge funders who helped inspired the Butler community to make gifts in celebration of Day of Giving!

 

You can still support Butler students by making a gift at butler.edu/gifts.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the spirit of Butler's founding year of 1855, Day of Giving is once again offering 1,855 minutes for Bulldogs to celebrate and give back to the University.

 

Our goal is for the Butler community to reach 1,234 gifts to unlock $75,000 in scholarship support for Butler students. Gifts made in celebration of Day of Giving will power Butler Beyond, Butler's comprehensive fundraising campaign that will allow the University to empower students, elevate learning, and engage communities­.  

 

Every gift made during Day of Giving directly impacts current and future students and has the potential to be multiplied through numerous matching and participating challenges from dedicated Butler supporters.
