Wilkes University

Giving Day Was a Success!

Giving Day raised over $80,000, including challenge funds, from over 500 alumni, university family, parents, students and friends of Wilkes who joined the effort!  

Each of the 10 participating units surpassed its fundraising goal, unlocking $2,020 in challenge funds! Take a look at the Giving Day Leaderboard to see the final results.

On 2.20.2020, we painted our social media pages blue & gold. Students, faculty, and staff across campus and alumni from around the world participated in Giving Day! Visit the Wilkes Alumni Instagram and Facebook pages to see how Colonel spirit soared throughout the University and resounded from the Henry Student Center.

We randomly selected 3 winners (1 each from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) who will be receiving a commemorative Colonel Bobble Head for their participation in the #Give2Wilkes Photo Challenge.

The Alumni and Development Office thank you for being a part of this effort and living our theme, “It Takes Two, Wilkes & You."
