Marian University’s Annual Day of Giving

Each year, the Marian University Knights community comes together for a day of giving to raise money for student scholarships and to broadcast its school spirit to the world. Wherever you are, you are invited to join the party—whether virtually through university social media channels or in-person through on-campus events and activities throughout the day.

What is a day of giving?

A day of giving is a one-day, 24-hour fundraising opportunity designed to bring people together to give toward a cause close to their hearts. Similar to Giving Tuesday, where organizations promote their organization and ask for donations, Day for the Knights is Marian University’s dedicated day of giving.

Gifts—of any size—are driven by social media and email communications. These gifts go toward the general student scholarship fund or to specific existing funds within the various schools, programs, or organizations. Days of Giving are known for their energy and fun and often include lots of friendly competition between campus groups to generate the most dollars or number of donors and various other goals.

Days of Giving are also great days of school spirit. Campus groups create their own party environments and incentives and use this opportunity to raise scholarship dollars while also promoting and celebrating their own favorite programs.

Days of Giving are for everyone—alumni, faculty, staff, current students, parents of students, and community friends.
