Another successful Give Day ends with nearly $1.9M raised by 4,182 donors for 2023


Clemson University held its eighth annual Give Day on Wednesday, April 5, 2023. The 24-hour fundraising event brought in a total of $1,884,312 million in cash and new pledges from 4,182 donors.

In order to support critical programs and initiatives, contributions from students, faculty, staff, alumni and other members of the Clemson Family came in by phone, mail, in-person at select campus locations and online through the Give Day website.

The contributions will bolster the University’s immediate needs, such as faculty resources and facilities improvement, along with student support, including the Richardson Scholarship Challenge, Champions 4 Access to Education, for unrestricted scholarship endowments to make education accessible to more students.

  • College-level general scholarship endowments.

We are incredibly grateful to our Clemson Family for the generosity and support we received on Give Day. Each one of their contributions will help us continue to provide our students with transformative educational experiences, advance groundbreaking research, and serve our state, national and global communities. Thanks to the Clemson Family, we can continue to make a difference and create a brighter future for all.


Each year, this campaign makes an incredible impact on the lives of students and the Clemson community.
