Join USU for 'A' Day of Giving on Oct. 5

Utah State University will host “A” Day of Giving on Thursday, Oct. 5, to generate support for students in need, faculty excellence, research and advancement of USU’s mission to be one of the nation’s premier student-centered land-grant and space-grant universities. Everyone is invited to Create Your Aggie Impact by giving to the USU area most meaningful to them.

From USU scholarships and student groups to colleges and department programs, supporters can allocate gifts to the areas they are most passionate about.

“Your gift will pave the way for life-changing educational and experiential opportunities that help our students thrive and grow into future leaders and innovators,” said USU Vice President for Advancement Matt White. “Regardless of what cause you give to at USU, and no matter the amount, the collective generosity of the Aggie community empowers students to fulfill their dreams and expands the impact of our great institution.”

During last year’s 24-hour fundraising drive, more than 500 Aggies came together to give gifts totaling nearly $170,000. Building upon this momentum and the strength of the Aggie Family, this year’s goal is to exceed 1,000 gifts.
