On March 29 and 30, 2023, Anselmians joined together as ONE to support Saint Anselm College during the ninth annual Days of Giving campaign. This year’s campaign raised more than $1.3 million from over 4,000 donors.
Over the two days of this year’s Days of Giving campaign, Anselmians celebrated everything that makes Saint Anselm College their home by raising funds for the programs and initiatives most important to them.
Generous donations to important initiatives such as scholarships, the nursing program, the Fr. Peter Guerin, O.S.B. Center for Teaching Excellence Endowed Fund, and the Professional Development Initiative – just to name a few - will impact the lives of our students, faculty, and staff.
There was also a tremendous response to the #HawksSoarHigher athletics challenge led by Vice President of Athletics Daron Montgomery, student-athletes, coaches, and staff, where more than 2,600 donors supported the many varsity sports programs, athletics scholarships, and athletics operations.
“Thank you to everyone who joined together as one to support the transformative education that our students, past and present, receive on the Hilltop,” said President Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D.
More facts and figures:
- More than 4,000 members of the community donated – a new record for the campaign.
- Gifts came in from across campus, 41 states, and around the world in denominations ranging from $10 to $100,000.
- Reunion classes, led by the class of 1993 in participation, raised more than $180,000.
- Hundreds of volunteers—including alumni, faculty, staff, monks, parents, and students—assisted by making phone calls, sending emails, issuing challenges, and spreading the word through social media.
“Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, faculty, staff, monastic community, board of trustees, students, and parents we celebrate the incredible success of our Ninth Annual Days of Giving,” said James F. Flanagan P’23, senior vice president and chief advancement officer. “I offer my gratitude to our campus partners and our alumni, parent, trustee, faculty and staff volunteers who helped support this Anselmian tradition.”
