Make a Bigger Impact this Giving Day
Have you heard? Giving Day is a one-day opportunity to create a lasting impact at NDSU by making an online gift. Gifts go farther, thanks to matches and challenges, and these investments support the entire University — help spread the word!

Become an Official NDSU Giving Day Ambassador
As an official Giving Day ambassador, you will be the boots on the digital “ground,” inspiring others to give and get excited — including alumni, students, parents, and all other NDSU supporters (aka Bison Nation!). You will foster the giving spirit by sharing personal messages about your experiences and the opportunities available at NDSU and encourage others to be ambassadors and give back on Giving Day. Official Giving Day ambassadors are eligible for challenges throughout Giving Day. Bring a little friendly competition to your fundraising efforts!
