Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about Mount Marty's Giving Day? Here are answers to some frequently asked questions that might help!

What is Giving Day?

Mount Marty’s annual Giving Day is a 15-hour giving event that encourages alumni, faculty, staff and friends from around the world to donate to student scholarships, and other areas at the College, on April 25, 2019.

Our goal at the end of the day is to reach 250 donors, so Think Big and Dream Bigger with us on April 25!

How will the money be used?

Donations received will go directly to the fund designated by the donor.

However, gifts designated to the MMC Annual Scholarship Fund will be matched by a generous group of donors.

Besides making a donation, how else can I help?

Tell all your friends! Your voice will make Mount Marty’s Giving Day a success. Post about Giving Day how you are helping the College Think Big and Dream Bigger on all of your social media platforms and tag your friends using #MMCgives.

Can anyone participate in Giving Day?

Absolutely! Support from everyone in the Mount Marty community—alumni, family, friends, fans, faculty, staff and students—counts. Donations from everyone count towards the 250 donors in 15 hours goal!

I can’t make a large donation. Will my gift make a difference?

Your gift also contributes to our alumni participation rate, which in turn raises Mount Marty’s profile in national rankings and increases the value of a Mount Marty degree.

We know how valuable your time is, so we’ve made the process quick and easy.
