Sights are set high to elevate the UNT community's collective impact and engagement across the university when UNT Day of Giving 2024 takes place May 1-2, with early giving kicking off April 1.

UNT Day of Giving was established by the Division of University Advancement as a way for alumni, friends and supporters to contribute to areas at UNT that hold personal significance, fostering an environment for students to soar toward success.

"Through Day of Giving, our UNT family is making a profound impact on the lives of students and the community they belong to," says advertising senior Ethan Gillis (above), who received an Academic Excellence Scholarship and a scholarship awarded to Eagle Ambassadors. "I've witnessed firsthand what the impact of what a donor's generosity looks like, and it's safe to say that one small act of kindness can make a big difference."

The inaugural UNT Day of Giving in May 2023 raised more than $600,000 from the generous contributions of 900 donors. It also featured a "College Showdown," where colleges and units competed to raise the most funds.

"Last year on Day of Giving, we were inspired to see so many members of the Mean Green family from all corners of the country support causes and areas of campus that mean the most to them," says Brandon Buzbee, vice president for University Advancement. "This year, we look forward to increasing our reach and expanding our collective impact on the university and the lives of our students."
