F&M's Day of Giving 2021

Wow, we did not expect this.

Thanks to Diplomats across the country and around the world, we blew past our initial goal of 1,787 donors for F&M’s Day of Giving! And in true Franklin & Marshall fashion, our community didn't stop there. During the past two days, more than 2,356 Diplomats stood together and made a gift in support of the College.

Our hearts are so full of gratitude.

Our inboxes were full of messages from alumni, volunteers, faculty and staff with inspiring stories about their Day of Giving experience. The entire Franklin & Marshall community stepped up big time. For 1,787 minutes, Diplomats were united and bonded by a common cause -- ensuring the F&M experience for future generations. Together we achieved something special, meaningful and lasting for F&M.

In the coming days we'll make sure to update you with our final donor numbers, gift totals, and which of our many challenges were unlocked. But know this, the full scope of your impact during this year's Day of Giving will be felt for years and years to come.

On behalf of Diplomats everywhere, thank you for being a part of making F&M’s second annual Day of Giving an emotional and rousing success.
