Friends, Fans and the Whole Elon Community

On Tuesday, March 2, the global Elon community can participate in a daylong celebration by sharing their Elon spirit on social media and making a gift to the area of campus that means the most to them.

As in years past, donors will be able to make gifts toward specific areas of campus that mean the most to them. These areas include student scholarships, affinity networks (Elon Black Alumni Network, Elon Jewish Alumni Network, Elon Latinx/Hispanic Alumni Network and the LGBTQIA Alumni Network), academic schools and departments, and the Phoenix Club (Elon Athletics). For those wanting to make a difference in the Alamance County community, consider making a gift to the Elon Academy, part of the Center for Access and Success. All Elon Day gifts will also count toward the Elon LEADS Campaign.

Make sure to follow @elonuniversity on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for exciting news and updates, and don’t forget to download our special Elon Day digital swag package to celebrate throughout the day.
