Ole Miss Giving Day
Wow! Thank you, Ole Miss Family!

You made the first-ever Ole Miss Giving Day a huge success. The University of Mississippi has always had a culture of giving back, but your generosity exceeded expectations.

Your gifts will improve the University you love. Even a small seed can grow into something towering and powerful. You planted the seed and made a difference! 

Rebels thank you and Hotty Toddy!

The Ole Miss Giving Day Team

 

There’s Still Time to Grow!
Apr 12, 2019

Thank you, Ole Miss Family.

We are growing together today. Make your gift before Giving Day ends! 

University of Mississippi Interim Chancellor Larry Sparks thanks you for planting seeds for the future. Your gifts make all the difference.

 

Way to Grow, Ole Miss!
Apr 12, 2019

We’re making a difference, right now, minute by minute. Here’s your chance to help. Make your gift NOW.

 

Giving Day is growing! We’re happy so many of you are stepping up to support your Ole Miss family with gifts to your favorite cause.

 

Once you’ve made a contribution, please share the news of your gift with your social media networks. There’s not much time left. Giving Day only lasts 1 day, 8 hours and 48 minutes. The countdown clock is rolling, so please tell your friends.

 

Together, we can support our students, improve our programs and make our campus even more beautiful.

 

Let’s keep on planting and spreading the word. Check out the Rebels below who have given and posted their support on social media with the hashtag #OleMissGivingDay. We’d love to see you on board!
