Yeshiva Universityâ€™s 2019 Giving Day 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 Dayâ€™s 2019 donors will help deserving students benefit from the life-changing YU experience.
â€œWe are not only deeply grateful for the remarkable support we receive from our community, we count on it,â€� stated Adam Gerdts, vice president for institutional advancement. â€œOur 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. Itâ€™s a committed, ongoing partnership that we value tremendously.â€�
Giving Day funds will be directed to scholarships for the Universityâ€™s undergraduate and graduate students.
