What is Giving Day?

Lehigh’s Giving Day is an intensive, 24-hour-long effort to engage alumni and campus community in a celebration of support for the university. The goal is to get as many people in the Lehigh family to participate. Plans include fun videos and contests, plenty of email updates and social media, and (of course) the chance to make a gift to Lehigh. You’ll be able to compete to unlock additional dollars for your area of support and possibly multiply the impact of your gift. Plus, watch for fun thank you messages and special shout-outs.


Where Will My Gift Go?

You tell us! Simply select the tile representing what you are interested in supporting. You can then search for a department or program or scroll through the designations offered. Your gift will be designated for use in that area. You can split your gift across a few designations or adjust the amount of your gift along the way.


Support Scholarships for Global Village 2019

Thanks to a matching gift from Kira Mendez ’83, your contribution will go even further. The first $2000 raised will be matched 1:1, resulting in $4000 for Global Village scholarships this summer. Every gift has the power to change the life of one of tomorrow’s leaders.
