GIVING DAY feb 21 - 22, 2018!


The University of Chicago’s fourth annual Giving Day is coming. This February, we’ll celebrate everything that makes UChicago so distinct. So different. So uncommon. Its history. Its traditions. The discoveries that could only have been made here. The intellectual rigor that defines every discipline and every Chicago School of thought. And the philanthropy that makes all of it—our past, present, and future—possible. On Giving Day, you can be part of something different. It’s your opportunity to make an uncommon difference at UChicago and on the world.

We’re taking an ordinary day in February and creating something extraordinary out of it. It’ll be 24 hours where we celebrate what we have in common—that UChicago way of surprising the world, one uncommon idea at a time.
We call it Giving Day. A day that exemplifies the spirit of the University—a challenge to the members of the UChicago community to turn a conventional day into one that makes a lasting impact on the world. So, from noon on February 21 through noon on February 22, you’re invited to join the worldwide UChicago community in meeting that challenge, and creating a real difference not only at the University of Chicago but around the world.
