The excitement of Erskine’s third annual Day of Giving goes on, with the school exceeding its announced 2021 goal for the April 28 event and additional donations still arriving. More than $129,000 has been raised so far during Erskine’s 2021 Day of Giving.
“Our goal was $125,000, and as of this morning we have topped $126,000—and gifts are continuing to come in,” Vice President for Advancement and Alumni Relations Paul Bell said in a message to faculty and staff members early on April 29. “Contributions made by May 5 will be credited toward the Day of Giving total.”
Bell reported that a generous $25,000 matching gift was made anonymously and was met by donations early in the day. “Momentum continued to build after that,” he said.
Day of Giving contributions will be used primarily for the reduction of tuition costs through general scholarship assistance. “Designated gifts were also received for a scholarship in honor of Dr. Howard and Penny Thomas, new equipment for our biology labs, and Erskine Athletics,” Bell said.
Even if you missed the Day of giving, it’s not too late to make a difference for Erskine. Join your classmates and friends—give today. Your gifts can work wonders for our students!
