Rockford University will hold its fourth annual Day of Giving on Wednesday, April 25. The day’s goal is to harness the power of social media during a 24-hour blitz to raise funds for the Rock Solid and Ready Campaign. Challenges, fun incentives and special guests will be featured to encourage engagement and participation throughout the day. This year, proceeds will directly support Rockford University’s capital campaign with a dollar to dollar match, doubling the impact for every dollar given on April 25.

Rockford University is nearing the completion of its $17.3 million capital campaign, Rock Solid & Ready: The Campaign for Rockford University in November 2018. With a $17.3 million goal, Rock Solid & Ready seeks to sustain and support the University’s ongoing transformational process and to set the stage for a continued era of progress. Rock Solid & Ready is comprised of three primary categories that will more firmly establish a top-notch experience in and out of the classroom from which students can learn and grow. The University will:

  • Compete by shaping modern facilities, ($6.1M)
  • Create by enhancing the student experience, and ($7.2M)
  • Commit by providing for current needs. ($4M)

To participate or follow Rockford University’s progress during the 2018 Day of Giving, connect with the University’s primary social media channels and use hashtags #RUNeedsU and #RUDoubleYourGift.
