For 24 hours on October 12, ’Canes around the world come together to harness the collective power of giving in our annual all-digital Giving Day.

Starting just after midnight (eastern time) on October 12, 2022, the collective power of giving will be in full force as the University of Miami launches its fourth annual #OneDayOneU Giving Day—an invitation to all students, alumni, parents, friends, and Hurricane fans to join together and make a difference for the U. 

On Giving Day 2021, the worldwide community of ’Canes raised an incredible $1,229,705 through 2,747 gifts!

As we get ready for Giving Day 2022, you will power us forward. Our goal during this 24-hour day of giving is to secure 3,000 donors and unlock additional dollars from our generous challenge gift supporters, amplifying the impact of individual contributions. That impact has the potential to touch every corner of the University, benefiting students, faculty, medical research, academic and campus programs, and the wider community.

Participating in Giving Day is easy, no matter where you are in the world. Give to the area or areas that matter most to you by making an online donation in any amount on October 12 between midnight and 11:59 p.m. EDT.

Share your support and spread the word on your social media channels, using the hashtag #OneDayOneU. You can download digital Giving Day graphics to use on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as your email account, from the Giving Day website.

Social posts will be aggregated and featured on the Giving Day home page. And as the clock ticks you can keep tabs on the leaderboard showing donor count, dollars raised, and challenges met.

“Giving Day is the day when the ’Cane spirit shines brightly and illuminates the impact such generosity can have on the U,” said Josh Friedman, senior vice president for development and alumni relations. “We look forward to ’Canes from around the globe rally together to support the areas they are most passionate about, and collectively generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for our University.”
