Why is Give Day different from any other day?
Hornets help each other get where we want to go! Give Day is a day for all Hornets to come together and celebrate our past, present, and future. It’s your chance to honor what you love most about Lynchburg!
Who can participate in Give Day?
Alumni, parents, faculty and staff, students, friends — anyone and everyone who wants to support Lynchburg can make a gift ($5 minimum).
What types of gifts are accepted on Give Day?
All types of gifts will be counted. This includes new or additional gifts for this fiscal year and payments on existing pledges. Gifts made online, by phone, or in-person between now and Give Day 2020 will be accepted. If you would like to make your gift by check, please write “Give Day” in the memo. All gifts received between now and Give Day 2020 will be included in our Give Day 2020 numbers.
If I make a new pledge (not a gift), will I count as Give Day donor?
No, new pledges will not be counted during Give Day, only gifts. However, if you currently have a pledge and wish to make a payment on it during Give Day, that payment will be counted toward our donor totals.
Can I give to any fund on Give Day?
YES! A gift to any institutional fund will count toward our donor totals. If you do not see a fund available that you are interested in supporting, simply select “Other” in the designation options and write in your preferred fund — an Advancement staff member will contact you to confirm.
Is my payment secure?
YES! As is the case every day, all payments will be processed using a secure online giving form.
Will my gift be tax-deductible?
