What is Day of Giving?

The University of Findlay Day of Giving is a single day every year when Oilers everywhere join together to celebrate UF and support the student experience.

What is the goal?

This year’s Day of Giving goal is to inspire 700 alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends to make a gift of any size.

Where can I designate my gift on Day of Giving?

We're asking all alumni, parents, employees, students, parents, and friends to make a gift in any amount throughout our 24-hour Day of Giving. You can choose to designate your gift to one of several different areas of campus: College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Business, College of Education, College of Health Professions, College of Pharmacy, College of Science, Campus Ministries, Findlay Fund, Findlay Forward Scholarships, Graduating Class Gift, Mazza Museum, Oilers Club, Parent Fund, or Student Affairs.

How can I make the most out of my gift?

You don’t have to make a large gift to make a large impact. Make the most out of your gift by participating in social media and donor challenges and matches and/or by giving to the area that has the greatest impact at UF - the Findlay Fund.

How can I become an advocate?

Besides making a gift, how else can I show my support?

While we would love everyone to make a gift on the Day of Giving, we know that not everyone can.

Matches and challenges are similar; the key difference is that challenges are milestone-based (e.g. if 100 people donate, I will give $250) and matches are made on a per donor basis (e.g. I will match up to $500 on a dollar-for-dollar basis for the next $500 that is donated).
Challenges are ALL OR NOTHING. When you start a challenge you’re basically saying you will give $XXX if, and only if, a certain condition is met.
For example: “I will give $50, if and only if, 50 more donors give today.”
Matches are DOLLAR PER DOLLAR or DOLLAR PER DONOR.
You are willing to match $XXX per donor up to $XXX.
  1. First decide the amount you wish to give.
  2. Then decide if you wish to match dollar per dollar or dollar per donor.
  3. Indicate your match ends when the Day of Giving ends (Thursday, March 21 at noon).
  4. Consider optional guidelines for your match:
    Examples:

    1. Match a specific affiliation
    2. Match a specific class year
    3. Match a specific designation
    4. Match a list of email addresses
