FAQs

Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising campaign that encourages Eagles -- alumni, students, parents, friends and employees -- to give through Husson and support every area of campus. Donors are able to support the schools, colleges, programs and clubs that matter the most to them.

 

Give through Husson to honor your favorite faculty/staff, one of the athletic teams, your college/school, or even one of the student clubs. Browse the areas that are participating on www.husson.edu/givingday.

Supporting the area that means the most to you on Giving Day is easy!

  • Write a check out to Husson University with "Giving Day" and the area of support in the memo line; 
  • Find the area you want to support on www.husson.edu/givingday and click "Give Now;" or, 
  • Text 22GivingDay to 41444 to support your favorite area of Husson

Generous alumni and friends offer unrestricted gifts, meaning to be used anywhere on campus, to help encourage others to join them in giving. Providing a matching gift means that for the specified timeframe, for every dollar that a donor gives, the alumni donor will also be giving a dollar.

For example, when a challenge is written that "we will match the first $1,000," the next $1,000 that comes in from gifts, until expended, will be matched. Therefore, if the donor makes a $20 gift to any area, the school/club/team will receive $40.

Gifts received beginning at 12:00 am EST until 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday, April 6th, 2022 will count toward one of the main challenges for the day. Every year, your favorite area has the opportunity to unlock additional funds.

Every gift you make counts as a "vote" for that area. At the end of the day, the area that has achieved the challenge area will be awarded the extra funds.
