William & Mary breaks all One Tribe One Day records with 12,770 donors
William & Mary celebrated the fifth annual One Tribe One Day on April 10 and surpassed all previous records made on the university’s single biggest day of giving. An impressive 12,770 donors made a gift last Tuesday, marking a nearly 570 percent increase in the number of donors who gave compared to its first giving day in 2014 when 1,906 individuals gave back.
Since its inception as part of the For the Bold campaign, more than 25,000 donors have participated in One Tribe One Day.
Once again, William & Mary’s family came together in a big way. Nearly $2.5 million was raised, thanks to the generous support of alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends. With a day full of fun festivities from the Sunken Garden to Beijing, Los Angeles and beyond, an enormous level of Tribe Pride could be felt in almost every corner of the globe.
