Thursday, March 12, was our annual Giving Day -- ordinarily a day for team spirit and friendly rivalry amongst Cornellians while raising funds for great Cornell causes. Given the unprecedented changes happening on campus this past week, and the impact on our students and their families, we thought long and hard about whether we should continue with Giving Day. In the end, it felt right to continue - to unite Cornellians around the globe in a common effort. We also felt the weight of how our students and Cornell causes – including pivotal research into human and animal health – need support now more than ever. We are deeply humbled how the Cornell community responded and rallied behind this year’s Giving Day – including students and parents who took steps to self-organize support on that day. Over 10,000 of you from 50+ countries and all 50 U.S. states participated in Giving Day 2020. We are so grateful. For more information on Giving Day, please visit https://givingday.cornell.edu.
