Thank you College family your support of the College on the historic 2016 GivingToHoosDay!

GivingToHoosDay 2016 was a huge success and we could not have done it without you. Because of your support, the College raised $460,755 from 1,142 donors to become the #1 school on Grounds for the most gifts to any school. We are incredibly grateful for your commitment to the future success of UVA and of the College.

What is GivingToHoosDay?

On Tuesday, April 12, 2016, UVA will host GivingToHoosDay, a 24-hour online fundraising event to support UVA schools and programs.

We are asking for support from our alumni, parents, and friends to mobilize through social media, share the message of GivingToHoosDay, and to #ChooseTheCollege. There will be a competition among schools for the most donors and the most dollars raised. The College’s goal is to be the leader on Grounds and to show the University community how passionate and committed College alums are to the future success of UVA.
