Thank you! Giving Tuesday A Success. New Donors Can Help Secure An Additional $50,000 for Seton Hall!
On November 17, 2014, we announced Seton Hall’s first-ever participation in Giving Tuesday. We also shared that a very generous anonymous donor had offered to make a $100,000 gift to the University if we were able to receive 1,000 gifts or $100,000 as a part of this campaign.
The results are outstanding, and we wanted to share them with you.
From the launch of the campaign through midnight on Tuesday, 1062 gifts were made to the University! The total amount of dollars raised was $415,768. This isdouble the amount raised during comparable periods in the past. We are incredibly humbled by your generous support. Because of you, Seton Hall students will benefit from a record-breaking amount of support and an additional $100,000 from our anonymous Pirate!
And there’s more great news… Due to the generosity of so many in the Seton Hall family, this same anonymous benefactor has issued a new challenge! If we are able to secure an additonal 500 gifts and/or $50,000 in support by December 31, 2014, he will give the University another $50,000 contribution.
If you gave a gift, we thank you. We appreciate your continued support and your assistance in helping Seton Hall secure the additional $100,000! Seton Hall is rising, because of you.
If you were unable to participate, we ask you to support this new challenge and help us secure an additional $50,000 to support Seton Hall! Every gift, no matter the amount, goes a long way to support the good work being done on campus and toward meeting our new goal. You can designate your gift to the area of campus that you care about most.

“My scholarship is one of the main reasons I came to Seton Hall. It made my coming to a great private school like Seton Hall possible for me and my parents,” said Cormier. “Also, thanks to the generosity of the Seton Hall family, The Hall is on the rise. When my parents or friends come to the University, I show them our new buildings and our new gym. It makes me more proud to be part of the Seton Hall community.” - Olivia Cormier ’16
