About

One Day, One Dayton

Our 2024 goal is 5,500 donors like you who make a gift of any size to any area of the University. Join Flyers from down the street and around the world as we celebrate our community’s ability to make a collective impact. Kick-start the momentum by making your gift right now! 

At the University of Dayton, we don't just fly ... We Soar!


Matching Gifts and Unlocking Challenges Spotlight

During One Day, One Dayton, challenges appear throughout the day and are created by alumni and friends rallying to make a bigger difference together. A few challenges are already created, and you can plan to take part in:

  • Just for Parents: The Parent Leadership Council will give $25,350 if 1,100 parent donors make a gift by 11:59 p.m. April 9.
  • New Crew Challenge: If 605 people make their very first gift to UD before 11:59 p.m. April 9, an anonymous donor from the Class of ’69 will give $20,000.

✅  Eclipse our ’23 goal — 4,500 donors: We surpassed last year's goal, and Denise ’77 and Greg ’78 Palmer gave $75,000!
✅  Just for Recurring Gifts (setting up a monthly/repeating gift): Anonymous '69 gave $10,000 because 25 donors made a recurring gift by 11:59 p.m. April 9.
