Q. Why are we having a “tag day”?
A. Tag Day is an initiative to educate our community about the importance of
generosity and philanthropy at Dominican. While tuition covers most of the cost of a
Dominican education, it does not cover everything. Donations help fill in this gap.
Q. Where do donations come from?
A. Dominican receives funds from individuals (mostly alumnae/i, parents, faculty,
staff, sisters, students, and friends), foundations, and corporations. They are asked to give
through mailings, phonathon calls, emails, grant and sponsorship applications, and face-to-face
Q. Is it important that alumnae/i give?
A. Yes! Alumnae/i participation is a factor in many national rankings.
This helps continue to build the reputation of the school and increases the value of your
degree. Each year, thousands of alumnae/i make contributions to Dominican.
Q. How can I help?
A. Thank alumnae/i or other donors you meet since they are supporting your
education. If you are a senior this year, participate in your Senior Class Gift
campaign. And when you are an alumna/us, be sure to give something back when you are asked.
Gifts of all sizes make a difference. It’s easy to make a gift at
