UJ Giving Hearts Day Record: 2020

Giving Hearts Day 2020 was one for the record books, both regionally and for the University of Jamestown. The one-day, online giving event helped raise $44,595 for student scholarships, up from $28,000 in 2019. In addition, UJ set a new record for the number of donors with 153 individuals and businesses making a commitment to positively impact the lives of UJ students.

UJ Director of Annual Giving Jim Klemann says, “Over 150 individuals and businesses gave with all their hearts to the University of Jamestown on Giving Hearts Day in support of student scholarships. It was an amazing day and we could not be more grateful for the generosity and kindness of our alumni and friends.”

Regionally, $19,125,578 was donated on Giving Hearts Day by 34,578 donors, supporting over 480 non-profits across North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.

Founded in 2008, Giving Hearts Day provides a platform for charities to fund their missions through an ever-increasing community of donors. The longest-running giving day in the country, Giving Hearts Day has helped participating charities raise more than $90 million since its founding.
