What is Day of Giving? 

A day dedicated to philanthropy, in which we are encouraging alumni, students, parents, friends, faculty and staff to come together to reach our goal of 1,300 donors making a gift to the College and 212 donors to the Seminary in a single day.

Who can participate?

Anyone can support Moravian College or Seminary on the Day of Giving by making a gift of any amount ($5 minimum). Alumni, students, parents, friends, faculty, and staff are all eligible to participate.

What types of gifts are accepted? 

Cash, credit card, and online gifts will be counted.

Can I make a pledge? 

No, only cash gifts are being counted on the Day of Giving. However, if you currently have a pledge and wish to make a payment on it during the Day of Giving, that cash payment will be counted.

Can I give to any area of the College or Seminary? 

College donors are encouraged to support the Moravian College Scholarship Fund (MSF) and Seminary donors are encouraged to support the Moravian Seminary Annual Fund (MSAF).  Donors are also welcome to designate their gifts to any cause they feel most passionate about. If you don’t wish to prioritize any one cause, then we encourage you to give to the MSF or MSAF, which is the area of greatest need within the College and Seminary community. 100 percent of your gift goes to your designated area.

What if I already made my gift for this fiscal year (I donated between July 1, 2018 and March 20, 2019)? 

Thank you for being a part of the MC donor family! We appreciate your commitment and encourage you to make another gift during our Day of Giving. We also need you to help promote our Day of Giving to others on social media by using #MCGiveDay for the College and #MTSGiveDay for the Seminary.
