Giving Day 2021

What is giving day?

Giving Day is a 24-hour philanthropic initiative during which we (the Northeastern community) come together to support Northeastern. Hourly challenges unlock dollars for colleges and student organizations. On Thursday, April 8, the Northeastern community will reunite for an exciting day filled with virtual challenges and festivities.

Why participate?

To help us to support you back! Help us to support 14 Bouvé Funds in our programs and departments across Bouvé.

Your participation, no matter what dollar amount, will help Bouvé support scholarships, entrepreneurship, awards, research, programs and events. So, join us on April 8th to make a gift, participate in our Bouvé in Bodies Activities and make a difference in our student’s education at Bouvé.
