Below you will find answers to many common questions about #DucksGive 2017.
What is #DucksGive?
#DucksGive is the University of Oregon's second annual giving day. This 24-hour campaign is a university-wide effort to inspire alumni, parents, and friends of the UO to make a gift to any area of campus. Our goal is 1,876 unique donors, in honor of UO's founding in 1876.
#DucksGive is an opportunity to directly support a student education. Make plans to give on May 18!
Why should I participate in #DucksGive?
With state funding making up just 6% of the UO's entire budget, private gifts are more important than ever in ensuring our students receive a quality education. Private gifts support scholarships, research, faculty support, programming, student experiences, and so much more. Ducks have been giving back since the school was founded in 1876, but gifts are needed now more than ever. Any gift of any size makes a direct impact.
There is no wrong place to give! If you aren’t sure of a specific area to give, the President’s Gift Fund provides for the highest priority areas on campus. Those donations will go towards supporting President Schill’s goals for the UO!
