10/5 One Day Give

ONE Big Thank YOU!

On behalf of the many faculty and staff, and especially our students, thank you for helping to make our 4th annual Millersville University One Day Give a success! Through the many contributions received throughout the day, the goal of raising $100,000 toward student scholarships and faculty-student research has been achieved.

Thousands of Marauders came together as ONE and thanks to you, 457 gifts totaling $123,630 will go to support student success here at Millersville.

We owe a great deal of gratitude to the many individuals, organizations and community businesses that provided matching dollars and special incentives for the campaign. Special thanks to our lead donors and challenge award donors.

Thank you again for supporting Millersville University.
