Tag Day

Dominican University Celebrates “Tag Day”
March 18-19, 2014


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 visits.

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 dom.edu/give.
