Fundraising campaign breaks university single day donation record

“All [in]” nets CWRU money from nearly 800 donors

On July 18, Case Western Reserve University officials set the goal of netting a school-record 618 donations in 24 hours. That goal was bested after 795 donors contributed $195,745 in that day.

The All [in] Day of Giving campaign was headed by CWRU’s alumni association, which had alumni reach out to fellow graduates through emails, postcards and a Facebook page.

Individuals in 10 countries and 37 states made contributions to the effort. The average donation was $245 but contributions ranged from $1 to $10,000.

The event was conceived primarily to encourage CWRU’s alumni giving participation rate, which helps boosts the university’s national rankings.
