Roanoke College received many donations during their Day of Giving on Wednesday — the college managed to exceed their projected goal for 2019.

The goal for the year was to raise $100,000. After 24 hours, the college had raised $324,472.

On April 10, 2019, Roanoke College held their annual Day of Giving. During the 24-hour event alumni, parents, friends, and the entire Roanoke College Community were encouraged to support students and the campus.

Money raising during the event went to the Roanoke Fund, which supports academic and athletic programs, scholarships, student services, and campus maintenance. The goal of the Roanoke Fund is to help bridge the gap between tuition income and the college’s total operating expenses.

Over 700 individuals donated to the campus on Roanoke College Day of Giving.
