Thanks to you, Day of the Dons 2017 was a record-breaking day.

The 24-hour online giving day set new records for the number of donors to the University of San Francisco in a single day.

We thank our donors, who helped us crush the goal of 1,500 donors — 1,621 of you helped us raise $520,517.51 in one day.

In addition, all four challenges and matches were secured:

  • We succeeded in reaching our $150,000 challenge with 1,621 gifts
  • We succeeded in reaching our $35,000 challenge with contributions made by over 350 alumni donors
  • $10,000 in gifts made to the School of Law were matched by Greg Blaine JD ‘91 with his own gift to the School of Law Assembly Fund.
  • $5,000 in gifts made by parents to the Parents Fund were matched, thanks to a generous USF parent.
  • 402 faculty and staff made gifts on Day of the Dons

All in all, USF raised an additional $200,000 in matches thanks to your support! Thank you for supporting Day of the Dons!
