On April 20, 2022, Olivet Nazarene University will launch its 6th annual 24-hour philanthropic event, Day of Giving. The University is inviting alumni, faculty, staff, community members and students to contribute to meeting the financial needs of current and future generations of Olivet students.
A university education is a hefty investment and 99% 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.
Hosted by Olivet’s Office of Development, the goal the Day of Giving is to secure 600 donors within 24 hours. Supporters can choose from more than 25 projects to give to specific groups or ideas for which they have an affinity. The purpose is to advance the student experience at Olivet through increased scholarship opportunities, enhanced academic resources and improved athletic programs.
For more than 80 years, Olivet has been an upstanding institution in Kankakee County. Every 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.
Consider taking a moment help fuel the mission of Olivet by giving on April 20.
