Christendom College will hold its third annual alumni Giving Day on Tuesday, April 21. The event, which seeks to rally alumni support and raise money for the college’s Carroll Fund, is aiming to double the current number of monthly givers and help the next generation of Christendom students thrive as a result.

The college’s alumni Giving Days have proven to be huge successes over the past two years, raising over $650,000 total for the Carroll Fund. The Carroll Fund specifically helps the college with financial aid, counseling and spiritual development, career services, athletics, and faculty and staff salaries

The college currently has 213 monthly givers, with the goal of raising that number to 400 over the course of April 21. While Giving Day would typically include in-person alumni events across the country, it will instead feature a live-streamed online party, with interviews, games, music, and more, brought to alumni by the college’s chaplaincy, alumni, and professors.

“While the current global health crisis may be preventing us from gathering together in person, it certainly won’t stop our Christendom family from coming together to celebrate and reconnect in a virtual way this Giving Day,” says Karla Hester, chair of the Christendom Alumni Advisory Council.

Christendom College is one of a handful of colleges in the U.S. to not accept federal funds, and therefore relies entirely on the generosity of its many benefactors for its financial success and security. The success of each Giving Day is a testament to the passion of Christendom’s supporters, who seek to ensure that the college will be able to offer its Catholic, time-tested liberal arts education for generations to come, helping to form future Catholic leaders so needed by the Church and society today.
