On its third annual Giving Day, Trevecca Nazarene University received more than $950,000 from more than 1,400 donors on Wednesday, March 22. Donors representing students, alumni, family and friends of Trevecca increased by 43 percent compared with last year’s Giving Day.
The funds raised will help fund key initiatives for the University including scholarships, athletic facilities, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programs and a number of other initiatives. This year’s donations will provide resources to shape students into servant leaders with a strong educational and spiritual foundation.
Peggy Cooning, Trevecca’s vice president of university engagement, celebrated the way the University came together 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 allows us to share our stories of how the University has made our lives better and then pay it forward to the next generation.”
There are still many areas to donate to including endowed and annual scholarships, campus improvement, operational support and the Urban Farm, a source of sustainable community resources and educational opportunities. To learn more and make a donation, visit www.trevecca.edu/give.
