HLGU Day of Giving


DoG Final Numbers

Hannibal-LaGrange University's third annual Day of Giving was a resounding success for the university. The outpouring of support from alumni and friends of the university exceeded expectations, resulting in a remarkable achievement.

The goal for this Day of Giving was to raise 250 total gifts over the 24-hour period between noon on Thursday, April 20 and noon on Friday, April 21. This goal was met by friends of the university as 267 gifts were collected as a part of the Day of Giving. Individual gifts across this time totaled $143,830.08, an incredible number! This is in addition to a $100,000 challenge gift from an anonymous donor, encouraging gifts as a part of Day of Giving.

The overwhelming response from donors demonstrates the unwavering commitment of supporters toward the mission and vision of HLGU. Through the generous contributions of friends from near and far, gifts have directly impacted the lives of HLGU students, empowering them to pursue their educational goals and fulfill their potential.

"Our third annual Day of Giving proved to be another exciting event for HLGU," said Director of Alumni Services and Development Lauren Youse. "The outpouring of love and support for the university through our alumni and friends' generous donations was a huge blessing. I’m so thankful for the donors who value the mission and work of Hannibal-LaGrange University."

Looking ahead, HLGU is excited to announce that the 2024 Day of Giving is already in the works. Mark your calendars for April 11-12, 2024, as the university aims to surpass this year's achievements and continue advancing its mission of providing a relevant biblically-anchored education.
