What is the Day of Giving?
Help us to celebrate Wagner’s 100 Years on Grymes Hill, and celebrate giving by making a difference in the lives of our students. Wagner alumni have challenged parents, friends, and other alumni to make November 27 a special day of giving for Wagner. Each gift made today will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 — and if we receive gifts from a total of 300 donors, we will receive an additional $30,000. We chose November 27 as it is Giving Tuesday, a national event intended to help us remember to give back amid the holiday commercialism.
Last year, Wagner raised $182,100 from 427 different donors on the Day of Giving. Because of those gifts, Wagner students are thriving today for a better tomorrow. Join us in celebrating this season of giving by making a gift today to honor the centennial anniversary of Wagner, and help to ensure its continued success for the next #Wagner100.
All gifts made to the College on November 27 will have double the impact, as there are exclusive matching gift challenges that will be announced on the Day of Giving. Make your gift and support Wagner students. Then spread the word any way you can.
Celebrate Wagner’s 100 Years on Grymes Hill and celebrate giving.
Dr. Felicia Ruff has been teaching theatre history and script analysis full-time at Wagner College since 2001, and is continually awed by the special alchemy that happens in classes and productions thanks to the willingness of our students to dream big and work hard.
Wagner College continues to be ranked among the top theatre programs nationwide and this is a testament to our students dedication and passion for live performance.
"Your support of the Nicolas School of Business will help to fund multiple opportunities for Wagner students so that they are qualified and ready to contribute global, insightful and unique perspectives to their professions and communities. Our students and their families sacrifice a great deal for a Wagner education and any support you can offer will be both appreciated and utilized to great effect." - Dr. Frank DeSimone, Associate Professor
“During my time as an undergraduate, my team won the first NEC football championship in Wagner history and I became a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity. I returned to Wagner for graduate school where I volunteered for an alternative spring break trip to Haiti. That experience provided me, and so many others, the space to reflect and think critically about who we were and the type of footprint we wanted to leave on this Earth. In my role, I support international students and students of color, and I've had the privilege of leading students on alternative breaks to Ghana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and New Orleans." - Sidiq Soulemana '13 M'16, , Assistant Director, CICA
