MVNU Giving Day is a 24-hour, online fundraising event where alumni, parents, staff, family, and community come together to support the university.

During MVNU Giving Day, we focus all of our development and advancement efforts toward direct and indirect support of student needs through the University Fund. Unfunded scholarships are awarded through the proceeds of this day. Student-related emergency needs are met through this campaign. Enhancements to campus life activities and events are funded (in-part) through this event.
In the weeks leading up to Giving Day, we will share stories of how the University Fund has been used to help students in their spiritual, emotional, and vocational growth while at MVNU. This year our goal is to engage with at least 1,000 supporters to help students when and where they need it the most.
