Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 16 and Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018 for The University of Toledo's Day of Giving, Rocket Forward: You Launch Lives.

Last year, the generosity of more than 1,600 alumni, students, faculty and staff members, and friends of the University raised more than $450,000. Collectively, your contributions changed lives!

In 2018, we are counting on everyone in Rocket Nation to join our 36-hour fundraising campaign to help students launch their UT educations and complete their degrees; to help faculty members continue research that impacts lives; to fund new drug therapies and medical advancements that improve patient care; and to support many UT programs across campus.

Want to Become a Day of Giving advocate?

Advocates are superheroes! Advocates give to the Rocket Forward: You Launch Lives campaign and help spread the word and encourage others to make a gift. They share news about Rocket Forward within their social networks (either by email or on social media). As an Advocate, you can create a short video that explains why you support UT and why others should do the same. Show your Rocket pride and support UT during its second annual Day of Giving. An Advocate training session will be held at noon EST on Wed., Sept. 12. It will be offered through the GiveCampus platform, where the official Day of Giving campaign will reside.

Interested in Matching and Challenge Gifts?

Matches and challenges are two great ways to maximize the impact of your giving. Funds are designated by members of the UT community to inspire additional gifts. Matches are typically donor-based (e.g. I will match the Class of 2010 dollar-for-dollar up to $250), whereas challenges are typically milestone-based (e.g. if 100 people from the Class of 2010 make a donation, I will give $250). The GiveCampus platform will allow individuals to create matches and challenges by following a few easy steps.
