Day of Giving

NC State Day of Giving

NC State Day of Giving is an annual, university-wide fundraising event. For 24 hours, the Wolfpack community comes together to support our students and demonstrate the strength of the Pack. Funds raised help us increase scholarships to keep education accessible to people from every financial background, invest in inclusion efforts, and promote diversity. Park Scholarships led the Pack during the inaugural Day of Giving on March 27, 2019. On Sept. 16, 2020, NC State held a special fall edition of Day of Giving. With the theme Stronger as a Pack, the day was focused on raising funds for urgent needs, scholarships, and diversity and inclusion programming.

To get involved in the next Day of Giving, contact Dana Dubis at dmdubis@ncsu.edu.

Day of Giving

During a special fall NC State Day of Giving, the Park community came together in support of the Park Scholarships program and each other. Two alumni created the 8th Co-named Park Scholarship and we raised over $400,000 for scholarships, diversity and inclusion work, and enrichment. Whether through making a gift, attending events, or participating in challenges, there were many opportunities to get involved and demonstrate that we are stronger as a Pack.

Relive the excitement on Park Scholarships’ twitter and #GivingPack, no account needed.
