Naz Giving Day surpasses its goal in support of students

Published June 12, 2020

Incoming and returning Nazareth students will now have access to more student aid, additional academic resources, and the assurance that their Nazareth family stands beside them. Naz Giving Day was a success on Thursday, June 18. The Nazareth community's enthusiastic response to Naz Giving Day helped the College unlock challenges, surpass its goals, and, through a total of 674 gifts, come together to raise $202,171!

As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is unfolding, it is clear Nazareth's incoming and current students need help now more than ever before. Future Nazareth graduates are at risk of not being able to complete or even start their Nazareth degree. For this reason, the College rescheduled Naz Giving Day for June 18, after postponing its third annual giving day, originally scheduled for March 19.

"Now and always, our world needs the kind of citizens a Nazareth education produces," Katie Mahoney-Krenzer '98, Nazareth's director of annual & leadership giving in Development. "We hope you will join us on June 18 to help students who want to cement their place in the Nazareth legacy, but are facing unexpected challenges."

Gifts of all sizes helped surpass the goal of 500 gifts by the end of the day to help keep the Golden Flyer community strong.
