Whose story will you help write?

Thanks to the amazing generosity and response from Pioneers everywhere last year, Alfred State’s inaugural Day of Giving was a tremendous success. 

This year, however, the college is looking to go even bigger and have a greater impact by raising $120,000 from more than 500 donors during its Day of Giving, set for Nov. 28. 

Trish Haggerty, director of Annual Giving, said, “Every day, our donors help write a new story for one of our students, whether it’s providing a much-needed scholarship, helping send one of our nursing majors to Haiti to care for underprivileged children, or ensuring that our students work with the latest technology. We’re excited to raise the bar higher this year in an effort to have a greater impact and help write even more great stories for our students.” 

In helping to reach its goals, Alfred State is making it as easy as possible for people to give and be a part of this great event. Any gift made to Alfred State between now and Nov. 28 will be counted toward the Day of Giving. 

Donations can be made: 

Those looking to be a part of the action that day are encouraged to visit, like, follow, and share the Day of Giving toolkit content. The toolkit, found on, will enable supporters to download social media cover images, as well as a profile badge showing they gave. 

Additionally, will feature real-time updates and allow visitors to track what groups are having the biggest impact. Visitors to the site will also be able to be a part of unlocking challenges, matching gifts being awarded, and will see live videos that day. 

Furthermore, Alfred State will be hosting a number of exciting on-campus events on Nov. 28 for Day of Giving to engage and educate students about the importance of giving back.
