About

Giving Day is a one-day-only fundraising event encouraging the LU community to support their favorite area of the college and an opportunity to come together and support all things Lawrence.

Your gift, no matter this size, has a HUGE impact on Giving Day!


For the 9th Annual Giving Day, every gift will be matched with a gift from our Game Changers.  Here’s how:

  • Gifts from the Classes of 2006-2026 will be matched with $500
  • All other gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar

Thank you for providing more opportunities to current students!


Keep your LU spirit high by participation in different Giving Day Challenges throughout the day on our Facebook and Instagram pages. These Challenges will give you the opportunity to unlock extra Game Changer funds. Good luck!

  • Share the LUv – 8 a.m.
  • First-Year Studies Favs – 10 a.m.
  • Time to Shine - Noon
  • LU Word Puzzles – 4 p.m.
  • Mystery Challenge – 6:30 p.m.


Your participation is key to helping us reach the day's goal, and unlocking major matching gifts along the way!


Made your gift? Thank you! Now: Share, share, share! Ask Lawrence classmates, peers, and friends to join in supporting LU, our amazing students, and our dedicated faculty and staff.

If you can’t make a monetary gift, your contribution is still critical. Help us ensure others know about Giving Day! Share on social media using with #LUGIVES, participate in the social media challenges and tell others what you love about Lawrence.
