Washington University will celebrate its first university-wide Giving Day on April 19, 2023. This special 24-hour fundraising blitz aims to rally the collective strength of WashU alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends in support of the university’s mission. 

Advancing innovative research. Paying it forward to current scholarship students. Commemorating the place you met your favorite people—there are countless reasons to give back to WashU. And from scholarships to faculty development, student health initiatives to patient care, there are countless areas at WashU to support. But no matter why you participate or where you direct your contribution, when we come together as One WashU, we can make a difference in the lives of our students, patients, and faculty—in just one day.

Your support during this 24-hour campaign is crucial to our success, so please mark your calendar and plan to join us in this fun and inspiring effort. We’re encouraging WashU community members—like you!—to spread the word and encourage participation within your own networks to help make it a day to remember. 

Follow us @WashUAlumni on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to track our progress on Giving Day, and make sure to use the hashtag #WashUGivingDay to share your reason for supporting WashU. Let’s go big for our students and our future!

Countless reasons. One WashU.
