EKU Giving Day set for April 14

Eastern Kentucky University’s second annual Giving Day will take place on April 14, with the goal of 1,000 donors.  

Eastern Kentucky University’s second annual Giving Day is set to take place on Wednesday, April 14, with the goal this year of 1,000 individual donors. 

According to a press release by EKU, this year’s theme is “One Day. One Goal. One Eastern.” 

“Whether a student comes to us as a first-generation student or from a long line of graduates, I want them to have a life-changing experience here at EKU,” said EKU President David McFaddin in a press release. “I hope you’ll join us on April 14, 2021, as we set our sights on making sure everyone who wants a transformative EKU experience, regardless of their socioeconomic status, has that opportunity. Through giving, we can give more scholarships and more educational opportunities to the upcoming generations.”

In 2019, EKU’s goal during the first Giving Day of 424 donors was shattered by more than 300 donations, with 748 donors.

If you are interested in participating in this year’s Giving Day, you can donate at go.eku.edu/givingday on April 14.
