The university will once again celebrate the power of philanthropy during the seventh annual TCU Gives Day. During the 24-hour giving challenge — from noon Oct. 27 until noon Oct. 28 — University Advancement hopes to reach its goal of 2,000 donors to TCU. This year, James, Anne, Brittany and Kari ’17 Hancock have generously agreed to leverage their $100,000 gift to establish an endowed equestrian scholarship if we meet our goal.
Any gifts made on TCU Gives Day will count toward the Faculty/Staff Annual Campaign as well as Lead On: A Campaign for TCU, the university’s most ambitious philanthropic campaign to date. Donors may make a gift to any area of the university for any amount – the goal is to collectively come together to make a larger impact for the greater good.
TCU Gives Day has a big effect on TCU:
- Almost 50% of gifts made during last year’s Gives Day were under $100.
- Gifts made on Gives Day last year totaled more than $850,000 designated for TCU’s people and programs.
- The vast majority of gifts given during last year’s Gives Day benefited student scholarships or school, college and department funds.
“We are incredibly grateful to TCU, and feel honored and empowered to give back to the TCU community. We hope you’ll join us in giving back to the university to shape the lives of current and future Horned Frogs.” — The Hancock Family
