Offering fun and easy ways to support what inspires you, Emory Day of Giving allows you to help Emory lead the way towards positive change in an ever-changing world by creating life-changing opportunities and experiences for current and future Emory students.

Now is the time for you to shape tomorrow by supporting student scholarships, strengthening academic programs, funding transformational research, supporting innovative patient care, or helping advance the cause, program, or enterprise within Emory that matters most.

Tomorrow depends on you.

Thank you for shaping the future
Mar 25, 2021

From its founding at Oxford in 1836, to the opening of the Atlanta campus in 1914, to this moment—Emory’s standing as a top-tier research university and a world-class academic medical center is the direct result of your generosity and the vision of donors like you, who back their pride in Emory—its people, places, and programs—in big and small ways.

 

Yesterday, when you joined 2,655 others with a gift to support all things exceptional at Emory, you made an investment in the future.

 

With an eye on tomorrow, you along with other Emory donors contributed over $840,000 yesterday, which will have a direct and immediate benefit on the lives of thousands of Emory students, the faculty and physicians who inspire them, and the projects and programs they pursue.

 

To see the final results for the programs you care about most visit the Emory Day of Giving website.

 

Thank you!
