UJ Receives Award for Fundraising Efforts

The University of Jamestown received the Rising Star Award from the Dakota Medical Foundation for outstanding performance in its Giving Hearts Day 2017 campaign.

“We are so grateful to Dakota Medical Foundation for their generous support of our communities. Our alumni and friends have once again opened their hearts and supported us during this great event,” said Polly Peterson, University of Jamestown Executive Vice President.

Giving Hearts Day is an annual online drive. The Rising Star Award is given to organizations that raised $20,000 or more and increased previous year’s fundraising by greater than 30 percent. Of the 360 Giving Hearts Day participants, only 67 organizations received the award.

This year, the University of Jamestown raised more than $50,000, about a 60 percent increase from their 2016 Giving Hearts Day campaign.
