NC State Day of Giving 2024

Day of Giving 2024 was a success! Here are some highlights:

  • Park Scholarships received 732.
  • Gifts totaled $229,000.
  • We successfully unlocked the 700 gifts challenge, receiving an additional $10,825 from the Regional Selection Committee Leaders/Elects.
  • At least five alumni from each cohort made a gift! This unlocked a $2,700 challenge gift from the Park Alumni Society Development Committee and Jessica Modeen.
  • The Class of 2027 had the highest percentage of gifts from current scholars at 58%, and the Class of 2010 had the the highest percentage of alumni giving at 38% of the cohort making a gift.
  • We won the Student Giving Hour AND the First Donor giving hour. This means we had the most students and the most first-time donors give in the hour. We received an extra $2,000 in funds for Park!
  • Unfortunately, our #BarkScholars didn’t win the #PackPets challenge, but we still loved seeing all those furry (and some not-so-furry!) faces.
