Tuesday, Feb. 28 marked Meredith College’s eighth annual Giving Day. Giving Day is a 24-hour annual fundraising event that raises funds necessary to address the various needs of Meredith College and its students. The college’s goal for this year's Giving Day was to raise $1,000,000. This goal was met when an anonymous donor sent a gift of 100,000 dollars at 7:30pm. A total of $1,329,823 was raised by the end of Giving Day, greatly exceeding the initial goal.

Donors have the option to designate their gifts to various causes such as the college's greatest needs, student organizations, scholarship funds and more. The top five designations for donations on Giving Day were the College’s Greatest Needs, Study Abroad, Scholarships & Financial Aid, Chaplains Student Emergency Fund and the Parents & Families Fund. Among all current and previous classes at Meredith, the top class for donations was the Class of 1977, followed by the Class of 1968.

Giving Day was made possible by all donations from faculty and staff, students, alumnae, families and businesses across the world. Student Phonathon callers also played a large role in receiving donations by making calls to alumnae.
