Annual Day of Giving surpasses goal with gifts from alumni, parents and friends


University News | April 29, 2021

Virginia Wesleyan University’s third annual Day of Giving, held April 23, was bigger than ever, President Scott D. Miller has announced. With a matching gift challenge of $10,000 from Trustees Tim Bailey ’83 and Gary Bonnewell ’79, support from the 2021 Day of Giving totaled $30,010.07 from 131 alumni, parents, and friends.

"I cannot tell you how proud I am to see this incredible show of support from our Marlin community," said Dr. Miller. "I thank all those who were able to participate—be it by making a gift or by sharing the campaign with others. It certainly is a great day to be a Marlin!"

The VWU family was asked to give to what they love at the University, and gifts supported a range of priorities such as annual scholarships, academic programs, Marlin athletic programs, student life initiatives, and more. 

Thank you to all Marlins who participated in this annual, philanthropic event. With your support, VWU will continue to be a place of meaningful engagement, service and opportunity.
