24-Hour Campaign Sets Anderson University Record for Giving

Friends of Anderson University provided more than $225,000 for student scholarships and facility improvements as part of the annual “A Day to Give” campaign, making 2019 the most successful fundraising event in school history.

Anderson University Senior Vice President for Development and Presidential Affairs Wayne Landrith was overwhelmed at the response from Anderson alumni, faculty, friends, staff and students.

“We could not have done it without you,” Landrith said. “Together, we raised resources that will transform students’ lives at Anderson University. Words cannot adequately express just how much we appreciate the support and partnership of those who care for and love our University.”

“A Day,” an annual 24-hour fundraising drive, is one of the most important annual events at Anderson. Its goal is to support students, faculty and campus programs. “A Day” is designed to remember AU’s past, celebrate its present success and impact its bright future by bringing alumni, family and friends together on one exciting day of giving. This year’s “A Day” took place on April 11.

Currently, donations as part of “A Day” total $229,300, and Landrith said more is expected.
