Yeshiva University’s Giving Day 2019 was a tremendous success. For a 24-hour period, from noon to noon September 18 to September 19, the world-wide YU community came together to raise a total of $5,770,391, exceeding its initial goal of $5 million. Donor participation was driven through a targeted marketing campaign and an enthusiastic team of student and staff volunteers who delivered the giving day message to thousands of people.
With more than 80% of all YU undergrads receiving scholarships, the generous contributions of Giving Day’s 2019 donors will help deserving students benefit from the life-changing YU experience.
“We are not only deeply grateful for the remarkable support we receive from our community, we count on it,” stated Adam Gerdts, vice president for institutional advancement. “Our donors make it possible for us to ensure that every deserving student who wants to experience all that a YU education offers can do so. It’s a committed, ongoing partnership that we value tremendously.”
Giving Day funds will be directed to scholarships for the University’s undergraduate and graduate students.
