Mark your calendars for Elon Day 2022

On March 1, the Elon community around the world will celebrate Elon Day, the university’s annual day of giving.

Elon Day, a daylong celebration that encourages engagement and philanthropy among all members of Elon’s global community, is set for Tuesday, March 1. Alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends can participate by making a gift to the university, attending on-campus and regional alumni chapter events and sharing their Elon pride on social media.

As in years past, donors will be able to make gifts toward specific areas of campus that mean the most to them. That includes student scholarships, academic schools and departments, the Phoenix Club (Elon Athletics), the Black Alumni Scholarship, affinity networks and student organizations. Elon Day gifts of all sizes and designations will count toward this year’s total and combine with all other Elon Day gifts to ensure that students get the most out of their Elon experience. Each gift will also count toward the $250 million goal for the Elon LEADS Campaign.

Elon Day officially began in 2014 in honor of the university’s 125th-anniversary celebration. Since then, Elon Day’s momentum and impact have grown year after year. Last year, donors gave more than 5,600 gifts totaling nearly $3.5 million, a new record.

The Elon community can also participate in Elon Day events on campus and around the world.  A list of campus events can be found here. In addition, events for alumni will take place in more than 40 cities around the world. These events will bring the momentum of the day directly to the Elon alumni network. A full list of regional alumni events will be released in February.

On Elon Day 2022, let’s show the world that Elon LEADS Through Us!
