What is the Day of Giving?
Wagner College is celebrating a holiday tradition on November 28, 2017! The Day of Giving is a one-day campaign celebrating everything that makes Wagner College unique. What can we do in one day? Help us discover just how much of a difference can be made in only 24 hours.
Last year, Wagner raised $167,715 from 402 different donors on the Day of Giving. Because of those gifts, Wagner students are thriving today for a better tomorrow. Join the movement and make your gift today to prove that together, we are all #OneWagner.
All gifts made on November 28 to the College will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000. Plus, if we reach 300 donors by the end of the day, we will receive an additional $25,000. Support Wagner students. Then spread the word any way you can.
We are all #OneWagner
