Are you ready to ACT BOLDLY? Be a part of Lycoming College's Day of Giving on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. Join us for this 24-hour event that encourages alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, and friends to show their support by making a gift to the College. During these unprecedented times, Lycoming students need your support now more than ever. Regardless of size or designation, your gifts have the power to create opportunity and change lives, and we encourage everyone to come together to beat last year’s record of $315,372 raised in a single day of giving.

Gifts made to the Student Retention Fund and Student Emergency Fund will provide targeted support for students who are facing extraordinary hardships, enabling them to complete their Lycoming education and earn their degrees. Every gift made to these funds on the Day of Giving will be met with a dollar-for-dollar match sponsored by the Lycoming College Board of Trustees. Help these promising and hard-working students earn their degrees by stretching your dollars even further through this challenge.

The College will construct a new music facility on the southeast corner of campus that will connect to the Mary Lindsay Welch Honors Hall. This $5.5 million facility represents the first significant capital investment in the music program in more than 75 years. The 14,000 square foot building, slated to open in the fall of 2022, will house a signature rehearsal and recital space, classrooms, soundproof practice rooms, and offices for music faculty. This new space will provide campus members and the greater Williamsport community with a state-of-the-art facility, ensuring the gift of music lives on for generations to come. Three gift challenges will be offered throughout the Day of Giving.

Donors will have the opportunity to support the recently established Larson-Morris-Piper History Fellowship on April 21. This fellowship will promote high-quality undergraduate student research by creating new funded research opportunities available for projects in history or history-related topics. In addition, the fellowship will further help attract and retain high-achieving students by providing support for a broader array of research interests and historical periods. The creation of this fellowship provides an opportunity to honor more than four decades of dedicated teaching and service performed by Drs. Robert Larson, Richard Morris, and John Piper Jr. A giving challenge will also be offered so that your gifts can make an even greater impact.

By making a Warrior Club gift to your favorite team on Day of Giving, you have the power to score an additional $12,500 total through multiple challenges to support Lycoming Athletics. GOLD (graduates of the last decade) alumni will once again have a shot at winning a jar of our coveted Lycoming peanut butter sauce, and fraternities and sororities can vie to win a tailgate at Homecoming Weekend.

Mark your calendars and plan to participate on April 21. Together, we can ACT BOLDLY. Together, we will remain Warrior Strong! Learn more and watch the Day of Giving promotional video here.
