Celebrate U Giving Day: Ways to get involved

Join us for U Giving Day, March 28 and 29, 2023! Alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff will unite for 1,850 minutes in honor of the University of Utah’s founding year to celebrate, engage, and make an investment in the university.

This is the one time a year that campus, University of Utah Health, arts and culture areas, faculty & staff, and athletics all come together to elevate the U.

Below are ways to get involved on campus this U Giving Day! Questions about events, match and challenge donors, or U Giving Day in general, email Rachel Robertson, director of annual giving, at

In 2022 we had over 650 students engage and participate with multiple activities, giveaways, and more. Student and campus organizations table and interact with students, faculty, and staff. The event has a stage and live programming throughout the day.

Student organization champions challenge

This Giving Day, we are launching a Student Organization Competition, who can be the biggest champions for the U? Each student in your organization will receive a “Champion Link” that will allow them to share content on social media about Giving Day. Two prizes will be awarded. The student organization whose students generate the widest reach on social media will win a prize, as well as the student organization that generates the most money in donations on Giving Day.

We will provide a toolkit to give you tips and help you get started! To participate as a Student Organization, sign up here.
