5.06.15: A Day of Giving

Twenty-four hours of giving has an impact that will last a lifetime.

What was once just a normal spring day at the University is now a day to be celebrated. On May 6, alumni, students, parents, employees and friends pulled together to give back to Scranton, showing just what it means to be a Royal.

A conversation that began among members of the Alumni Society Board of Governors about an inaugural day of giving quickly blossomed into "Scranton506,” the most successful one-day giving campaign in the history of the University. In 24 hours, 1,044 donors contributed a total of $139,340 in support of scholarships, academic programming, service, Campus Ministries, athletics and other University priorities.

Social media channels were buzzing with purple-themed selfies, nostalgic photos of campus and well-known Jesuit quotes. Pride was high and the sense of community was strong online, on campus and around the world. Dedicated alumni volunteers helped to develop the concept, set the goals for Scranton506 and were part of the momentum that made it a success.
