ATHENS, WV (WVNS) — Concord University invites alumni and friends to their 2023 Giving Day to help meet their goal of 500 donors.

The fundraising campaign will start Thursday, September 21 and conclude Friday, September 22 at 12:00 p.m.

Donations made at the 2023 Giving Day will help Concord University’s Annual Fund, which is one of the most important funds for CU, that helps with scholarships, campus improvements, and other University related projects.

Each September for the past four years we have seen the generosity from alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Concord expressed through their support of Giving Day. It’s the time of year where we come together in support of Concord and our students that leaves us all inspired to continue to support the mission and vision of the university. This year, as we focus on bringing together 500 donors for Giving Day, whether it is $10 or $1,000+, each donor and each gift will make an impact. Concord has a significant presence in our communities as we look forward to continuing that legacy with the help of our supporters.
