Cheverus Giving Day 2021

Cheverus Giving Day was a huge success!

Thank you to the more than 500 donors who supported Cheverus by making a gift on Giving Day.  You helped us exceed our goal by a whopping 200 donors, and together we raised more than $150,000 for students, faculty, and programs at Cheverus. 

We extend a special thank you to our matching and challenge donors, as well as our advocates, class agents, alumni council, trustees, and other volunteers for their efforts leading up to this record-breaking event.

Head on over to to see how your class fared on the leaderboard, see the donor map, and more. If you have not yet made a gift to Cheverus this year, there is still time! The school's fiscal year ends on June 30, 2021...Give now!

Giving Day FAQ

Yes, but it's not too late to support Cheverus! Though Giving Day is over, the school's fiscal year doesn't end until June 30, 2021.  If you have yet to make a gift to The Cheverus Fund this year, we'd be thrilled to have your support.  Click here to give online. Thank you!

THANK YOU! Every gift, every day of the year supports our students and programs. 

We are not retroactively counting gifts but you can help by spreading the word and sharing the Cheverus Giving Day link with your Cheverus friends and family and on social media.  If you want to be counted on the online platform, you could make another small token gift to Cheverus. 

Know that we are grateful for your support any day of the year!

While The Cheverus Fund is our top priority and we encourage you to support this effort, gifts to any program area or scholarship will count on Cheverus Giving Day.  When you make your gift, choose from the options in the drop-down or add in your own gift designation by selecting "other."  You can even split your gift two ways!

The generous donors behind the $50,000 "Double Your Impact Match" are giving to The Cheverus Fund (unrestricted). That means all matching dollars are going to The Cheverus Fund, regardless what gift designation a donor chooses for their own gift.

The same is true for the "Parent and Grandparent Challenge" and the "Trustee Bonus Challenge."

Excellent question.  Here are a few reasons:

  • Small gifts add up quickly.  Collectively, we can do more for Cheverus.
  • Alumni participation creates a broad and diverse base of support for the school.
  • Consistent giving by alumni (even at modest levels) in the years immediately following their graduation increases the likelihood that they will become major donors later in life.
  • High levels of participation can inspire major donors, corporations, and foundations to increase their own support. People and organizations want to invest in successful institutions that others are supporting too!

Yes, of course!  We'll be "counting" any gifts we receive in the mail toward our Giving Day goal.  Click here to see all the ways to give to Cheverus. Don't hesitate to call Elizabeth Woodcock at (207) 774-6238 ext. 183 if you have questions.
