On Giving Tuesday Now, every gift made to the college during the one-day fundraising effort will support the Daemen Care Fund, which provides emergency support to students in need. Gifts will help provide students access to resources for remote learning and assistance for housing, transportation, and other unforeseen financial needs many students are facing amid the crisis.

Every gift, of any size, will support Daemen students. To make a gift for the initiative on May 5, please visit the Daemen Care Fund. More information about Giving Tuesday Now will be provided in the coming weeks.
