Q. Why are we having a “Tag Day”?
A. Tag Day is an initiative to educate our community about the importance of generosity and philanthropy at Dominican. While tuition covers most of the cost of a Dominican education, it does not cover everything. Donations fill the gap, and the URSCI Expo is one example of how philanthropic support creates environments and opportunities for students and faculty to conduct and present their research. This truly reflects the efforts of our whole community, with over 250 students participating, and many more members of the extended Dominican University family supporting them.
Q. Where do gifts come from?
A. Dominican receives funds from individuals (mostly alumnae/i, parents, faculty, staff, sisters, students and friends), foundations, and corporations. They are asked to give through mailings, phonathon calls, emails, grant and sponsorship applications and face-to-face visits.
Q. Is it important that alumnae/i give?
A. Yes! Alumnae/i participation is a factor in many national rankings. This helps continue to build the reputation of the school and increases the value of your degree. Each year, thousands of alumnae/i make contributions to Dominican.
Q. How can I help?
A. Stop by the Tag Day table in Lewis Alcove from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on April 6th! You will have an opportunity to write a thank you note to a donor, learn more about Tag Day and win prizes! When we are not celebrating Tag Day, remember to thank alumnae/I or other donors you meet because they are directly supporting your education. If you are a senior this year, participate in your Senior Class Gift campaign and give a gift back to the university that has given you enriching experiences, countless opportunities and a high-quality, relationship-centered education!
