Giving Days

Generosity lives here. The Briar Cliff community is endlessly inspired by the support and contributions of our alumni, donors, and supporters who are dedicated to making The Cliff the best it can be. Giving days like Day of Giving and Giving Tuesday have brought that generosity into the world of social media, helping us share our mission with a larger audience and engage a new generation of philanthropists. 

Each year, we reach out to you for support as we pursue new opportunities to bring Briar Cliff into the future of higher education while staying true to our Catholic Franciscan values. Your contributions to our Day of Giving and Giving Tuesday campaigns do more than provide valuable funds for current and future Chargers - they defy distance and bring our Cliff community together.

Day of Giving

Day of Giving is an annual spring giving day where our alumni, donors, and supporters come together to support student scholarships, campus beautifications, and advance the mission of the University.

Briar Cliff's 2019 Day of Giving is on March 27, 2019. Stay tuned for more details!

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media. It's celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving in the United States, kicking off the holiday season and inspiring people to give to the organizations they care about as the year draws to a close.

This year, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match a total of up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook to eligible US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits like Briar Cliff. Join us on November 27, 2018 as we honor our Emeriti professors and the gifts they gave to our students and university throughout their combined 1,085 years of service.
