Christendom College will hold its sixth annual Giving Day on Tuesday, March 21. The event, which will celebrate the college’s 45th anniversary, will seek to rally alumni and parent support for the college’s Carroll Fund and help the next generation of Christendom students thrive as a result.
The college’s annual Giving Day has proven to be a huge success, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past five years. The Carroll Fund specifically helps current students by supporting financial aid, counseling and spiritual development, career and leadership services, athletics, and faculty and staff salaries.
Following the tradition of the past few years, Giving Day will culminate with a live-streamed online event at 8:00 pm EDT, featuring an early look at the college’s new Christ the King Chapel, a Divine Mercy Chaplet for deceased alumni led by College President Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, a “quodlibet” open academic forum with Professors Mike Brown, Sharon Hickson, and Dr. Daniel McInerny, and a trivia event with Professor Mike Brown.
Each year, Giving Day focuses on a specific theme to excite and unite alumni. This year, alumni are encouraged to join in celebrating the college’s 45th anniversary and assisting it in its continued mission to “Restore All Things in Christ.”
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.
