On Lipscomb’s second annual Day of Giving on 02/20/2020, 3,522 donors gave $826,925 in just 24 hours, and they went above and beyond the goals set for this ambitious day.
For the second year in a row, multiple donating challenges were extended and not only met, but surpassed. One Lipscomb supporter pledged $100,000 if 2,020 people gave on 02/20/2020. Done.
Someone also promised to match every gift to student scholarships up to $80,000. Also done.
The entire community helped in big and small ways, from making donations to matching them to sharing about this historic day on social media. Donors were able to choose specific programs that they wanted their donation to support, from missions to athletics and every program or initiative in between.
Among the results for specific programs on the Day of Giving were:
It started with a challenge: On March 13, 2019, the Lipscomb community was challenged to have 500 people give to Lipscomb. If they did that, they would secure $100,000 for student scholarships.
But the community came together and blew the donor’s expectations out of the water. The first Day of Giving ended with more than 2,500 donors and raised over $500,000.
This year, on the second Day of Giving, the challenge was increased to 2,020 donors in 24 hours. Again, the Lipscomb community came through in a big way, with 3,522 donors giving more than $800,000.
Lipscomb is a bold leader in the Nashville community with ambitious plans to spread its reach, encourage innovation and prepare students to serve both locally and globally. The historic turnout for the 2020 Day of Giving shows that the Lipscomb community shares a passion for providing students with best-in-class academics, a transformative student experience and a perfect place to bring innovative ideas to life.
