Checks in support of Day of Giving can be mailed to Shepherd University Foundation, PO Box 5000, Shepherdstown, WV 25443.


Why is Day of Giving Different Than Any Other Day?

Thanks to a group of generous donors, every gift on Day of Giving helps earn bonus funds for Shepherd University. In other words, every gift makes an even bigger impact.

There will also be special one-time challenges that will give areas at Shepherd the chance to compete for additional matching funds. You make a huge difference when you give to Shepherd. And for 24 hours on Day of Giving, your gift can do even more.

How Can My Gift Be Counted Toward Day of Giving? 

All gifts made on March 25 (midnight to midnight, EDT) count toward Day of Giving 2021.

Can Anyone Participate in Day of Giving?

Absolutely. Support from everyone in the Shepherd community (family, friends, fans, staff, students) counts on this day.

Where Does My Gift Go?
