Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about NDSU Giving Day 2023.

What is NDSU Giving Day?

NDSU Giving Day is an online fundraising event that brings together NDSU alumni, students and many other supporters of the University. It is a one-day opportunity to make a lasting impact at NDSU by making an online donation at ndsugivingday.com. Funds raised during NDSU Giving Day will support student scholarships and a wide range of educational priorities across the university. 

Why should I give to North Dakota State University?

Your generosity will support educational priorities that set NDSU students apart and help prepare them for real-world success. NDSU Giving Day donors also support scholarships, making an NDSU education possible for talented students who are limited only by their financial resources.

How can I get involved?

First and foremost, we encourage all of our NDSU family to make an online gift on Giving Day at ndsugivingday.com. We also encourage everyone to spread the word and become an NDSU Giving Day social media ambassador. You can register to become an ambassador at ndsugivingday.com.  Be sure to join the conversation and share our official NDSU Giving Day hashtag: #Give2NDSU.

What areas of the university can I support?

The NDSU Giving Day website, ndsugivingday.com, will offer many funding options among the University’s colleges, departments and programs.  Giving is easy and a great way for donors to support areas of the university that they are most passionate about.

What are Matches and Challenges?

A challenge incentivizes donors to meet a certain fund-raising goal in order to trigger a major donor’s gift.

A match is a form of challenge whereby a donor agrees to match other cash gifts up to a set amount of money.

Can donors make a gift by phone or regular mail?

Because NDSU Giving Day is only a 28-hour event, donors are encouraged to make gifts online.  However, from 8:00 a.m. CST to 5:00 p.m., donors can call 800-279-8971 to make a gift.  Making a gift by mail is still a great way to support NDSU, but it would not impact our NDSU Giving Day results. 




Can I use payroll deduction for my Giving Day donation?
