CCEE receives a record 333 gifts totaling $195,641 on Day of Giving

NC State held its sixth annual Day of Giving on Wednesday, March 20, and once again, alumni, friends, parents, faculty, staff and students showed up strong for 24 hours of #GivingPack. At the end of the day, the university raised more than $46 million from 21,920 gifts, and the College of Engineering raised more than $4.8 million from 2,031 gifts. 

The CCEE department was declared the winner of the College of Engineering Leaderboard with 333 gifts totaling $195,641. The department received $10,700 from the CCEE Advisory Board for completing a match challenge of 200 gifts. 

The gift total is the most NC State has received on Day of Giving to date.

This community comes together and responds in a big way every year. The way Day of Giving has grown says so much about the Wolfpack family,” said Chancellor Randy Woodson. “We are so proud of all we accomplished today. As I often say, as exciting as these numbers like this are, what is most exciting is the impact these gifts will make.”

Donors representing 99 North Carolina counties, all 50 states and Washington, DC, and 20 countries were part of the 24-hour effort.

Donors also used social media to share their inspiration for #GivingPack and the experiences they hope to give forward to current and future students — making philanthropy a collaborative experience.

“Day of Giving brings our entire community together,” said Brian Sischo, vice chancellor for university advancement. “I’m so grateful to everyone who joined in today to show the true strength of the Pack. Each year continues to get better and better — this is an incredible university and an incredible campus that comes together to do amazing things.”

“There is nothing better than seeing so many alumni, friends, families, students, faculty and staff invest in the parts of the university they find most meaningful,” Woodson said. “Thank you to everyone who made this day such a record-breaking success.”
