TALKING POINTS

What is the University of Miami Giving Day? One Day One U Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising event for the University. On this day, students, faculty, staff, parents, friends, and ’Canes around the globe come together to make a difference for the University of Miami and the world.

What is the goal? ’Canes who join Giving Day have the chance to support our students, schools and colleges, campus programs, medical research, and the greater community. Our goal is to secure 3,000 donors between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. EST on October 12.

I can only make a small gift, is it worth it to the University? Absolutely! No matter the size of your gift, your participation directly impacts our students and the greater community. One Day One U is about having 'Canes come together and gifts of all sizes collectively make a difference.
