It’s truly incredible what we can all do together.
Each day, I am humbled by the stunning generosity of Mountaineers around the globe.
On Wednesday, November 8th, West Virginia University will host its first-ever Day of Giving. For one day, and only one day, our community will rise to the challenge to raise funds for the future of our university. In only 24 hours, we’re going to lay the groundwork to tackle our greatest obstacles head-on.
By making a contribution on the Day of Giving, you can directly support the University’s greatest priorities and opportunities, as well as the critical needs of your favorite school, college, department, or even the WVU Alumni Association, which you can designate during the donation process.
Here at the WVU Alumni Association, your gift can provide alumni with the opportunity to boost their professional development, give back to their communities, strengthen our state, and most of all—connect with fellow Mountaineers like yourself. Each gift you make, no matter the amount, helps the WVU Alumni Association enhance their programs and scholarships offered to future students, current graduates, and alumni all over the world.
You might be asking yourself, “Which programs has the Alumni Association designed to help me?” Just a few weeks ago, we launched our latest program, WVU Connect, a new online community designed to help WVU Alumni network, engage, and provide mentorship to current students and graduates. When Mountaineers join WVU Connect, they can engage in important conversations, network with professionals in their field, and get connected with Mountaineers in their region or perhaps with people they’ve graduated with years ago.
When Mountaineers help other Mountaineers, there are no limits to the challenges we can achieve.
In addition, we’ve recently launched our WVU Alumni App which provides graduates with access to our alumni base right at their fingertips, and we have a number of exciting programs to unveil in the coming months. This is only just the beginning.
For only 24 hours on November 8th, we will tackle our greatest needs head-on and you can help make that difference.
If every Mountaineer donated even a small amount to the WVU Day of Giving fund, we could pave the way for the future of the WVU Alumni Association and enhance the lives of our 200,000 graduates, including yourself.
Together – in one day – we can all help to forge a brighter future for WVU over the next 150 years. Learn more about our Day of Giving at dayofgiving.wvu.edu and join us on November 8th.
