Heidi DeWitt Woodbury, vice president for institutional advancement at the University of Utah, is pleased to announce the U’s inaugural U Giving Day May 21-22, 2019.
“We are thrilled to be hosting the university’s first-ever day of giving. U Giving Day is a celebration of the strengths of our campus in the areas of academic excellence, health care, athletics, the arts, and community outreach. I am looking forward to seeing the collective impact we will make during this event for the future success of our students and the university,” said Woodbury.
Alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty and staff will unite for 36 hours to celebrate, engage and make an investment in the future of the university. U Giving Day challenges the community to imagine more for the future of the students and the university.
