SHA benefits from first annual Cornell Giving Day
Wednesday, March 25 bore witness to the first-ever Cornell Giving Day, a festive and inspiring virtual coming-together of alumni, parents, friends, and Big Red fans all over the world to raise support for Cornell over 24 hours.
Contributions made that day had an even bigger impact than usual, thanks to a handful of generous supporters who provided $300,000 in challenge money, awarded according to a college's, school's, or unit's final standing in the giving totals.
SHA is proud to announce that thanks to the generosity of our worldwide community, the school came in third out of 22 Cornell units in the friendly competition, with gifts totaling over $1.13 million, or 16.2% of the almost $7 million raised.
Visit the Cornell Giving Day website for more information on the event, including final standings for all units, or see our blog post and view a handy infographic on the Cornell Giving Day results for SHA.
