Alfred State College is once again calling upon all Pioneers and friends of the college to show their support for the school during its annual Day of Giving, which is set for Nov. 27. 

This year, Alfred State is looking to raise $150,000 from 700 donors for its big day. 

Trish Haggerty, director of Annual Giving, said, “Our Day of Giving has become an opportunity to watch the alumni, parents, faculty, students, and friends of Alfred State come together from around the world to give back to future generations of Pioneers. There are no gifts too small, because together we can offer an opportunity for students regardless of financial standing to experience the hands-on learning environment that makes Alfred State so exceptional. This year, we are celebrating our 110th anniversary at the college, and we need everyone’s help to get this party started on Nov. 27.”  

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. 27 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 www.alfredstate.edu/give, “like” facebook.com/AlfredStateAlumni, follow twitter.com/AlfredStateAlum, and share the Day of Giving toolkit content. The toolkit, found on alfredstate.edu/make-a-gift, will enable supporters to download social media cover images, as well as a profile badge showing they gave. 

Additionally, give.alfredstate.edu/give 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. 27 for Day of Giving to engage and educate students about the importance of giving back.
