On Nov. 8, West Virginia University will hold its first Day of Giving, an online fundraising effort to support our greatest priorities and opportunities. Together – on one day- we can help forge a brighter future for WVU.
The Cancer Institute leadership has issued a challenge gift to support our efforts. They have agreed to give $20,000 to the Cancer Institute if 100 donors give to the Cancer Institute on WVU Day of Giving.
We are asking that you join the rest of the WVU Community for this 24-hour online fundraising event. Your support will help the work WVU does around the world, from medical research to helping rebuild communities. We hope you will consider making a gift on November 8th. Your donation online may have the opportunity to be matched.
