From noon on April 22 to noon on April 23, 2021, Olivet Nazarene University is hosting a 24-hour philanthropic event, Day of Giving. The University is inviting alumni, faculty, staff, community members, and even students to contribute to meeting the financial needs of current and future generations of Olivet students.
The purpose of Day of Giving is to advance the student experience at Olivet through increased scholarship opportunities, enhanced academic resources and improved athletic programs. Donors can choose to give to one (or more) of 25 targeted projects, or to the Olivet Fund or Foundation. Visit www.olivet.edu/dayofgiving for updates on the event!
Hosted by the Office of Development, the goal the Day of Giving is to join with alumni and friends of the University to support the longevity of Olivet’s ability to offer an “Education With a Christian Purpose.” For more than 81 years, Olivet has been an upstanding institution in Kankakee County. Each year, the University offers free events such as the Sounds of the Season Christmas concert and the Ovid Young Organ Recital Series; hosts sports camps to introduce young athletes to a university environment as they improve skills; performs stellar renditions of award-winning plays and musicals; and accommodates community events such as high school graduations, band concerts and art festivals.
Olivet prepares students for lives of service, and countless alumni work in the community as educators, nurses, social workers, engineers and business owners, among other professional roles. A university education is a hefty investment and 99 percent of Olivet students receive financial support in the form of scholarships, grants and loans. Scholarships are made possible through the generous gifts of donors.
Development initiatives like the Day of Giving, ensure that generations of Olivet students will receive necessary financial assistance to pursue a robust education that encourages community involvement.
Consider taking a moment to make a moment and support students at Olivet by giving on April 22-23.
