Q. Why have you decided to go forward with Day of Giving, considering the COVID-19 crisis?

We realize this is a difficult and uncertain time for everyone. Faculty, staff, and leadership at D’Youville have been working tirelessly to ensure our students can take classes digitally and complete all their necessary training to receive their degrees, and we are so proud of the resilience of our community. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative we continue educating the healthcare leaders of the future and all others who “never refuse to serve.” But we can’t move forward successfully without the support of our alumni and friends. The Fund for D’Youville makes a critical difference in the academic and career services we can provide to our students, so we hope we can count on your support during this year’s Day of Giving. Thank you for your understanding!
