PenguinsGive is April 20
Join the Penguin Nation for our third annual 24-hour fundraising event and support the departments and programs most important to you during PenguinsGive on April 20, 2023.
Thanks to generous donors, your gift of any amount, to any area of the college, will be matched dollar-for-dollar. More than $15,000 is available to double your donation. *
All gifts will be matched as long as funds remain. This special opportunity allows you to double the support to the area of the college you are most passionate about. For example, a $50 gift to student scholarships becomes $100, a $90 donation to the STEM program means $180 for that department to use as needed, or $150 to the Music department becomes $300 thanks to some generous donors.
