April 12, 2018: Giving Day

Creighton University President, the Rev. Daniel Hendrickson, SJ

I am pleased to share that your generosity yesterday during the inaugural Creighton Giving Day raised $712,570. In 24 hours, more than 3,600 donors, including 571 faculty and staff and 494 students, participated in the online gift program, and additional gifts are being given today. 

Your charitableness resulted in all 67 funds listed on the Giving Day website receiving contributions, and many met or exceeded the goals set for the program. On behalf of the departments and programs receiving funding, thank you for taking the time to read more about how your investment in Creighton will benefit current and future students. 

There are many ways Creighton faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends regularly demonstrate their unselfishness, but your generosity sets an example for what can happen when our community comes together around our mission of providing students with opportunities to go and make a difference in the world. 

You are true blue.

Gratefully,

Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, SJ
