Trevecca Nazarene University’s second annual Giving Day on March 15 resulted in total contributions of $1,505,353 raised through the gifts of 979 generous donors, surpassing the school’s $1.5 million goal. This year’s total exceeded the contributions from last year’s inaugural Giving Day by more than $287,000.

For 2022, donors had the option to designate their donations to projects that included scholarships, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program, athletics, the Waggoner library or other school programs like theatre and the Urban Farm.

Last year’s Giving Day funded multiple school initiatives including student research, health sciences and the renovation of the Jernigan Student Center. As part of this year’s Giving Day festivities, Trevecca celebrated the opening of that building’s new dining hall, a tribute to the success and potential of Giving Day donations.

Peggy Cooning, Trevecca’s vice president, celebrated the way the University came together, united in leadership, service and a belief in Trevecca’s mission. 

“We are incredibly grateful for the way the Trevecca community—alumni, students, employees, churches and friends—came together to celebrate the connections we have with one another to serve and lead others,” Cooning said. “Giving Day allowed us to share our stories of how the university has made our lives better and then pay it forward to the next generation.”
