Together, the Elon community raised over $3.4 million from 5,609 gifts and unlocked numerous opportunities for Elon students and the community.
Elon Day is always special but this year, in particular, was a testament to the Elon community and its dedication to creating life-changing opportunities for students.
“It’s hard to believe all that we’ve experienced this past year. Our daily lives challenged the ways we teach and learn – we’ve had to adjust the ways we engage at work and in our communities. However, what hasn’t changed is the passion of our community to support the power of an Elon education to make our world a better place,” says President Connie Ledoux Book in a special video message to the Elon community.
On Tuesday, March 2, thousands of people around the world helped grow opportunities for Elon students. Together, the Elon community raised over $3.4 million from 5,609 gifts.
Elon Day donors unlocked numerous opportunities for Elon students and the community by completing and participating in matches and challenges throughout the day.
As always, Elon donors were able to make a direct impact on the areas of campus that mean the most to them. These donors made gifts to 176 campus funds including scholarships, student organizations, athletics, affinity networks, schools and programs.
Elon Day gifts of any size, to any area or program, also count toward Elon LEADS: Our University Campaign.
