Record-Setting UST Giving Day 2021 Is Reason to Give Thanks

A record-setting Giving Day 2021, thanks to the most awesome donors on the planet, had University of St. Thomas reeling with delight for all the support. On April 28, when the Together We Rise campaign came to an end, targeted support for UST’s schools and programs totaled $110,208.00, making it the most successful Giving Day to date.

The drive experienced a 48% increase in the number of donors from the previous year, and 142 of them were first-time givers to UST.

It’s always about making a difference in the future of St. Thomas students. Generous philanthropists responded throughout the day to the opportunity to give to more than 28 projects, initiatives and causes, including these:
