Mark your calendars: Giving Day 2023 is Feb. 22

by Green & Gold News  |   

We’re excited about another #49HoursForAlaska and hope you are too! Giving Day 2023 kicks off 49 hours of celebration and giving on Feb. 22. UAA, UAF, UAS and the UA Foundation are joining together and inviting the UA community to show their university pride, share posts, spread the word and give to the area they care about most.

In November 2021, UAA supporters turned out from every corner of the state, country and world, helping raise as part of a larger UA Giving Day initiative more than $262,000 for UAA and over $1 million across the University of Alaska System. We hope you join us again Feb. 22-23 to raise money for the green and gold! Visit UAA Giving Day for further details on how to share your Seawolf pride.
