The Stony Brook University community will be challenged to open doors for Seawolves everywhere at the sixth annual Giving Day on Wednesday, March 27.

The 24-hour fundraiser will support a wide variety of initiatives, as gifts will benefit students, faculty, academic programs and initiatives across campus.

GIVE NOW!

“[Our donors] came forward in remarkable ways last year, from providing scholarship support to funding the impactful work of the Cancer Center and so much more,” said Stony Brook University president Maurie McInnis. “This year, our goal is to raise $1 million. If history is an indication of our future success, I am confident that we will meet – and exceed – that goal.”

“I am more inspired every year by the engagement and generosity of the Stony Brook community on Giving Day,” said Justin Fincher, vice president of advancement and executive director of the Stony Brook Foundation. “I look forward to seeing the community come together and make an even deeper impact this year.”

Last year, more than $810,000 was raised through more than 3,400 gifts, impacting 120 different areas of campus. This year, the goal is to raise $1 million from 3,500 gifts. From the arts and athletics to medicine and research, community members can open doors for our future leaders, healthcare workers, entrepreneurs and forward thinkers.

To date, Giving Day has garnered $2,193,172.71 in donations, with 12,532 donors and 14,146 gifts.

Follow along on Stony Brook’s Giving Day website, where all gifts will be tracked in real time. There are also challenges that allow some gifts to have an even greater impact.
