Day of Giving F.A.Q.

What is the Day of Giving?

Our Day of Giving is a one-day fundraising event. Alumni, friends, staff, faculty and even students come together on that day to make a gift of $5 or more in support of Marietta College.

When can I give?

Day of Giving starts at midnight EST the morning on Friday, February 14, and ends at 11:59 p.m. PST. Go to during that time for a link to the live campaign page to make your gift and follow our progress.

What is our goal?

We set a one-day participation record in 2019, and we hope to do even better this year, with a goal of 1,000 donors.

Are Day of Giving contributions tax-deductible?

Yes! When you make a gift on February 14, you will receive an email confirmation that serves as your receipt for tax purposes.

Where do contributions go?

Day of Giving contributions go to The Marietta Fund, which allows the College to address areas of greatest need. This can include providing additional student aid, updating technology for classrooms, renovating athletic facilities, underwriting faculty salaries, and more.

Why should I participate?

When Pioneers pool their resources, we can blaze new trails together. By giving back to the College, you are making a profound difference in the lives of today’s Pioneers. Your gift – of any amount – helps provide the resources students need to realize their dreams, and shows the entire community the love you have for MC.

Are there other ways I can get involved?

Absolutely! Do you have a few hours and access to a computer? You can volunteer as a Day of Giving Advocate, reaching out to friends and classmates to encourage them to participate. Want to leverage your own gift to encourage others? You can set up a personal challenge to match gifts from your classmates or other list that you provide. You can even help build awareness leading up to the day by sharing what you love most about Marietta by using the hashtag #Luv4MC.
