New records set at 2022 LovEMU Giving Day


LovEMU Giving Day 2022 was another record-setting event — with $295,173 raised from 1,363 gifts. 

That’s a gain in more than $14,500 and 346 new gifts over last year’s totals.

The grand total includes

  • $135,937 for the University Fund for Resilience;
  • $36,350 for the Student Tuition Relief Fund;
  • and $51,018 for the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund.

“These funds provide the building blocks for a bright and equitable future for each and every student,” said Braydon Hoover, director of development and annual giving. “We invited our community to help us envision how we can ‘Rise Up’ from another challenging year, and they answered ‘Together.’”

Receiving top votes from donors and winning $1,000 each were teacher education, in the academic category; field hockey, among athletic teams; and the Student-Athlete Advisory Council, for student organizations. 

Thanks to the many who donated and shared of their time to tell us how you LovEMU!
