Northeastern’s third annual Giving Day is fast approaching!
On April 11, 2019, the Northeastern community will come together for a 24-hour fundraising event to support the programs, teams, and initiatives that make our university so unique. Last year was record-breaking, and we’re counting on our community to help make this year’s event an even bigger success.
“Giving Day is a great way of getting our entire D’Amore-McKim community to come together to support what makes us remarkable,” says Deborah Magnezy, Assistant Dean of Development at D’Amore-McKim. “We encourage everyone – alumni, parents, faculty, staff and students – to participate. Any gift on Giving Day is meaningful!”
D’Amore-McKim will be working hard to activate our unique and awe-inspiring community around the following funds that can really make a difference for our students, teaching, and research:
D’Amore-McKim School of Business FinTech Initiative Fund
- Gifts to this new fund will support D’Amore-McKim’s Fintech Initiative, which will serve as a central clearing house for engaging Northeastern students with the financial services community and with emerging technological advances within that community.
