Giving Day Raises Nearly $7 Million
Bookmark and Share


Cornell’s first-ever Giving Day, a twenty-four-hour fundraising marathon held on March 25, garnered more than 9,600 gifts totaling just short of $7 million, the University has announced. The event allowed donors to designate their gifts to specific programs, engendering a friendly rivalry among them as the numbers came in.

Athletics and Physical Education topped the list with $1,819,408, followed closely by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Hotel Administration. In terms of individual gifts received, the Arts and Sciences came in first with 1,496, followed by Engineering and CALS. Gifts came in from fifty-two countries, six continents, and all fifty U.S. states plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

Said President David Skorton: “We saw the power of the Cornell community in action on March 25. Together, our alumni, parents and friends have shown how much they care about the University, and how much of an impact they can make together to further our mission on so many fronts.”

Cornell Alumni Magazine was among the recipients included in Giving Day—and we thank everyone who donated to support us!
