UToledo Day of Giving Set for Oct. 15-16

The University of Toledo alumni, faculty and staff members, students, and friends will come together Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 15 and 16, to support the University’s third annual Day of Giving.

The 36-hour campaign, “Rocket Forward: You Launch Lives,” will begin at midnight Oct. 15 and end at noon Oct. 16.

“Our Day of Giving offers Rockets everywhere a chance to make a real impact on our students, research and critical programs,” UToledo President Sharon L. Gaber said. “Each year, the generosity of our alumni and supporters worldwide helps fuel the success of so many determined people in our community. We’re thrilled to see that positive energy and momentum continue this year.”

The Day of Giving Fall Festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15 on Centennial Mall. The event features a dog-petting station, corn hole games, a basketball contest, pie in the face, wax hands, pumpkin bowling and pumpkin golf. Participants can donate dollars for game tokens, and donations may be made with cash and credit cards.

Giving stations will be set up across Main Campus and Health Science Campus. Donations also can be made at

You can designate a gift to any of the more than 2,000 University of Toledo Foundation funds, supporting specific causes and programs that you are passionate about. Every donor and every dollar will make a difference in support of scholarships, athletic and educational programs, research, healthcare, and community services.

Last year, the campaign raised $717,375 from 3,156 donors — including many students and first-time supporters.
