Newman University Giving Day to be held Feb. 25

Feb 11, 2021

Newman University will hold its second annual Giving Day on Thursday, Feb. 25. The day was created to bring the Newman community together at one time to support a program of their choosing.

This year’s goal is to have 250 donors within a 24-hour period — no matter the amount given.

“Getting people involved and engaged plays an important role in fundraising,” said Senior Development Officer Beth Fatkin. “Our Newman community is large and we want to see that community join together for a great cause; to be part of a bigger purpose.”

There are many ways to donate on Giving Day, and supporters can choose to give to a specific area of campus.
