Dakota State University in Madison is holding its annual Giving Day on Wednesday. This year’s goal is to raise 75-thousand dollars and 250 donors and gifts for scholarships and programs.
Jon Schemmel, DSU’s vice president for Institutional Advancement and director of the DSU Foundation and Alumni Association, said that the platform of Giving Day enables every department on campus to have the opportunity to share their message and let donors decide where they would like to make an impact.
Scholarship funding is essential for Dakota State’s students. The goal is to offer as many scholarships as possible so all students can benefit. As DSU continues to grow the need for scholarships increases as well.
DSU’s fundraising doesn’t end with Giving Day on Wednesday. Schemmel said the university is also continuing its Trojans Unite campaign, which is designed to raise private funds for DSU Athletics’ athletics facilities. The goal of that campaign is to raise 90-million dollars for the three-phase project.
