What is GivingToHoosDay?

GivingToHoosDay is a 24-hour event on Tuesday, April 10, that encourages the entire UVA community to financially support UVA schools, departments, programs and CIOs like Madison House. This event brings together alumni, parents, students and friends to commemorate Founder’s Day and celebrate the UVA experience.

2019 marks Madison House’s fourth year of participating in GivingToHoosDay. Last year, Madison House raised over $50,000 to fund its student community service programming—and hopes to surpass that amount this year!

When you sign up or log-in, you will receive unique links to share online. GiveCampus will also tally the number of clicks to the campaign that you generate, how many of those clicks turn into donations, and the sum of those donations.
