The 2020 Day of Giving is on Wednesday, April 1 - no fooling! 
No amount is too small. What matters most is that you make a gift, become a fundraising ambassador, or share your D'Youville pride on social media.
This year’s Day of Giving will focus on supporting The Fund for D’Youville, formerly known as the Loyalty Fund. The Fund is particularly important this year as it will finance new initiatives and programming relating to the impact of COVID-19 on our campus and community. As you may know, we recently announced plans to accelerate graduation for students in high-needs healthcare fields, such as nursing, pharmacy, and physician assistants, during the current COVID-19 crisis. (For more information, please see our News Release.) In addition to modifying certain requirements, we plan to offer $1,000 graduation bonuses to those graduates who choose to stay in New York State to fight the pandemic. Your support of this year’s Day of Giving will help make this initiative possible, as well as help our current students stay on track while continuing their studies from home.
