Give Big: Messiah College Giving Day 2019

Why Giving Day?

Messiah College Giving Day is all about bringing Falcon alumni, parents, employees, and friends from all over the world together to make a difference for our students in a span of 24 hours. All gifts made to Messiah College from 12 pm on February 12th, 2019 through 11:59 am on February 13th, 2019 (EST) will be matched up to $62,500 and will also count towards the bonus challenges.

What makes my contribution on Giving Day special?

Your gift has an even bigger impact than usual on Giving Day thanks to a handful of generous alumni and friends matching all gifts dollar for dollar, up to $62,500, with their own gifts to Messiah College! This is an amazing opportunity for you to see the impact of your gift doubled to benefit the experiences of Messiah College students.

Where does my gift go?

On Giving Day, you can choose to give to what has most impacted you! Options include The Messiah Fund, the Falcon Athletic Network (FAN), the Agape Center for Service & Learning, The Office of Sustainability, and The Collaboratory. To learn more about each of these programs, visit their campaign pages.
