Thank you for raising $324K+ on Giving Day 2023
by Green & Gold News |
Last week, UAA supporters from across the country came together to promote and participate in an incredibly successful Giving Day event! UA Giving Day-49 Hours for Alaska is a philanthropic event organized in conjunction with the UA System Office, UAF and UAS. This year was the third annual UA Giving Day and it was the most successful event yet.
While the final results are still being tallied, UAA received more than $324,000 in donations from over 980 donors representing at least 43 states and 250 UAA champions helped spread the word about Giving Day. Social media was flooded with green and gold for more than two full days as UAA colleges, community campuses, student groups, student-athletes and community members spread the word about Giving Day.
“Giving Day was a huge success thanks to the enthusiastic participation of our UAA community and incredible contributions from supporters across the state and country,” said UAA Chancellor Sean Parnell. “We are grateful to everyone who donated, posted on social media, served as a champion or helped get the word out to make Giving Day such a resounding success.”
For those who missed the 49-hour window, gifts can still be made to the university online at engage.alaska.edu.
