Elon Day, the university’s annual day of giving, is here. This day is an opportunity for the worldwide Elon community to come together and make an impact on the lives of current and future Elon students. Now in its sixth year, this day encourages engagement and philanthropy among all members of the Elon community around the globe. Join us in making a difference.
Elon Day began in 2014 as part of the university’s 125th anniversary celebration. Since then, Elon Day’s momentum and impact have grown year after year. Last year, donors made history with 5,370 gifts totaling more than $18 million. Elon Day gifts of all sizes and designations will count toward this year’s total.
“At its core, Elon Day is an opportunity for the Elon community to come together and create a lasting impact on current and future students,” said John H. Barnhill ’92, associate vice president for university advancement. “The driving force behind Elon Day is the belief our partners, advocates and investors have in the university. Together, Elon can and will continue to provide opportunities for students.”
The Elon community can participate in Elon Day events on campus and around the world.
On-campus events include a special College Coffee starting at 9:40 a.m. in Alumni Gym (note the updated location).
