Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about #DucksGive 2018.

What is #DucksGive?

#DucksGive 2018 is the University of Oregon's third 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.  It's an opportunity to directly support a student education.

Please join us and give to a University of Oregon fund you're passionate about on #DucksGive, May 17, 2018.

Why should I participate in #DucksGive?

State funding makes up less than 10% of the UO's entire budget, so gifts from Duck Alumni and friends are more important than ever in ensuring our students receive a quality education. Giving supports scholarships, research, faculty support, programming, student experiences, and so much more. Ducks have been giving back since the University of Oregon was founded in 1876, but gifts are needed now more than ever.

#DucksGive is an opportunity for you to combine your gift with the gifts of thousands of other Ducks to make a huge difference on UO students. Give during #DucksGive on May 17, 2018.

How can I give during #DucksGive?

You can make your donation online by clicking "Give Now" on our main webpage. If you prefer to make your gift through other means, please contact us for more details.

Where should I give?

There is no wrong place to give! If you aren’t sure of a specific area to give, the President’s Success Fund provides for the highest priority areas on campus. Those donations will go towards supporting President Schill’s goals for the UO!

I understand that many companies will match my gift to the University of Oregon. How can I find out if my employer will match my gift, and how do I go about it?

What is a challenge gift?

These are gifts that have been pledged by generous donors.  Each will be released to the University once its goal is met.
