Thank you for supporting Giving Day 2016!
Trine University’s second annual Giving Day, held Thursday, Nov. 17, raised $90,236 with 360 gifts made to the university. The total represents more than a 20 percent increase in funds raised from last year, given by 22 percent more donors.
“We are grateful for the generosity of the many alumni, friends, employees, Trine parents and even students who supported Trine University as part of the annual Giving Day, especially those who made an extra effort to encourage support for the event,” said Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine president. “Each gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference in lives of students who benefit from a quality education at Trine.”
Giving Day was a virtual, 24-hour challenge to benefit many programs on campus. Gifts could be directed to the student scholarship fund or any area on campus, and were made by alumni, current and retired faculty and staff, parents, friends and 35 current Trine students. Gifts came from as far away as Malaysia.
Participants in Giving Day gave through the Trine website or via telephone. Alumni and friends promoted the event on social media and issued friendly challenges to classmates, teammates, friends and colleagues using #TrineGivingDay. An honor roll of those who supported Giving Day is at trine.edu/givingday.
