The “One Day, One U” digital Giving Day hopes to raise more than $500,000 to support programs and other initiatives at the University of Miami.

The University of Miami will celebrate its first digital Giving Day on Monday, April 8—a 24-hour online and social media extravaganza that will bring together students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the UM community in an effort to support, celebrate, and give back to the University.

The “One Day, One U” celebration will include an array of events on campus, along with special gatherings in Broward and Palm Beach counties that mark the University’s 94th Charter Day Celebration. 

The University of Miami was officially incorporated on April 8, 1925, as the University’s founders began implementing their vision to build a top university in Coral Gables. Just six years remain before the University celebrates its centennial in 2025.
