YU Inaugural ‘Day of Giving’ Is Smashing Success

The Yeshiva University call center erupts with excitement when the fundraising goal is reached.

New York—On September 21, Yeshiva University successfully concluded its first-ever Day of Giving, shattering the original $5 million goal and raising $6,010,870 from over 2,700 donors in just 24 hours with the help of hundreds of students, alumni, faculty, staff and community volunteers.

The $6 million raised will be used to help maintain scholarships, community engagement, student life, career development and many other activities that support the university’s mission.

“The success of the campaign shows that YU is here, alive, well and ready for the future,” said Elliot Gibber, national chair of the YU Annual Fund.

The campaign’s theme, “I Am YU,” focused on the multiple people and communities impacted by YU, and included a social media component—highlighted by a video narrated by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Broadway star, Pulitzer Prize winner and a 2009 YU honorary degree recipient.
