During the second UTHSC Giving Day on Tuesday, April 26, more than 950 alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center joined together to support the exciting work being done by the university.
The one-day philanthropic event, which was led by the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs, encouraged donors to support the university with gifts of any size.
The campaign exceeded its primary participation goal of 750 gifts in 24 hours; unlocking a challenge gift of $90,000 to the university. Factoring in all other matches and challenges, nearly $600,000 was raised, pending a final accounting. Participation this year is significantly higher than last year’s 700 donors for the inaugural UTHSC Giving Day. The generous gifts on Giving Day support scholarships, bolster programming and help build healthier communities. Totals remain preliminary and are still being updated
“The success of Giving Day 2022 amplifies brand awareness. while garnering increased philanthropic support and donor commitment to our UTHSC mission,” said Love Collins, III, vice chancellor for Development and Alumni Affairs at UTHSC. “These unprecedented metric outcomes for our second program year, including funds raised and participation, are a direct consequence of leadership; teamwork; support from UTFI (the UT Foundation, Inc.) and the UTHSC nation (students, faculty, administrators, alumni, friends); strong message clarity; and very careful planning. We intend to realize even greater results next year!”
