Samford’s Big Give is a 36-hour fundraising event, also known as crowdfunding, that is powered by email, social media and online giving. It provides alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff of the university an opportunity to make a gift to their favorite Samford school, program or scholarship.
This year, Samford’s Big Give is featuring 12 projects in need of support: one for each school or college, and athletics.
The second annual Big Give begins at 9:00a.m. on Thursday, June 12 and concludes at 9:00p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2014.
From improving classrooms across campus, impacting international missions and funding scholarships to empowering students through professional development opportunities, giving though the Big Give is an easy, fun, exciting way to make an impact at Samford!
