The university received 505 gifts totaling $1,043,330.
The day of giving is the first of its kind at Augusta University. Funds raised help the university address its greatest priorities. Because it was held virtually, donors were able to choose an initiative to support that meant the most to them, or in which they believed their gift could have the greatest impact.
“I am very pleased with the tremendous success of our inaugural Giving Day,” said Debbie Vaughn, vice president for Philanthropy & Alumni Engagement. “Our donors certainly responded to this call to action and we are very appreciative. My thanks to our leadership for embracing and supporting this important virtual initiative, which will continue to grow each year. Congratulations to our Philanthropy & Alumni Engagement team members and a huge thanks to those across the university and health system with whom we collaborated on behalf of our students and patients.”
