On LovEMU Giving Day, April 5, 2023, Pay It Forward Together for EMU. Start thinking about all the ways you love EMU—those are reasons to support this wonderful university, its faculty and staff, programs, and of course, our students who come here from 39 states and 40 countries.
Whether the picture that springs to mind in your head for LovEMU Day is the good friends or even your life partner you met here, the finding of your vocation, your sense of community, a favorite spot on campus, or that favorite faculty or staff member, we invite you to join us for our 24-hour giving day extravaganza, in which alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, and friends come together to support and celebrate the university we all love.
Our EMU Facebook Live page will be the main headquarters, hosted by Braydon Hoover ‘11, MA ‘21 (organizational leadership), associate vice president for advancement and several students throughout the day. We’ll be sharing unique videos of the student experience and some friendly contests for EMU gear.
This year’s event features more than $100,000 in challenge match funds, nearly as much as we raised in our first annual giving day. We’ve come a long way since then, thanks to you!
Help us set a new record! Last year, for the sixth consecutive year, you helped us to set a new LovEMU Day giving record of $295,173 raised from 1,363 gifts. We’d love to best that this year.
As EMU and our students continue to be challenged by the global pandemic, our University Fund for Resilience, the Student Tuition Relief Fund, and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund are among the featured funds of the day. But we encourage you to give to any fund close to your heart.
Follow the challenges!
Check out the LoveEMU Giving Day website throughout the day to watch the dollars and votes rise and see if challenge matches have been met. The leaderboards will again be active for athletic teams, academic programs, and student orgs.
Can’t wait until April 5? You can help us unlock $10,000 in the LovEMU Day early challenge by giving a gift before LovEMU Day even begins! Check out love.emu.edu for more details!
