Giving through One Day for UK changes lives. For many students, a college education would not be possible without the generosity of alumni, friends, faculty, and other partners. On One Day for UK, we come together to ensure every deserving student achieves their educational goals.
The Fund: The College is raising funds for the newly created Arts & Sciences Student Support Gift Fund, which helps undergraduate students with urgent financial needs that may prevent them from continuing their studies or completing their degree.
The Need: As state funding continues to decline, private philanthropy provides the resources the College requires to fulfill its commitment to education, research and service.
The Challenge: Show your Arts & Sciences pride by competing for the following:
- Most funds raised during One Day for UK
- Most donors supporting the College during One Day for UK
The Match: Dean Brady and a group of A&S alumni has generously come together to provide $15,000 in matching dollars. Regardless of what area in the College you support during One Day for UK, this group will match each gift dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000 with their gift to the Arts & Sciences Student Support Gift Fund, increasing the impact of your gift.
Let’s come together during One Day for UK to make a difference in the lives of our students and to show the world what Kentucky Can do in one day!
