1842 Day is Villanova’s annual day of giving and will take place on Tuesday, September 20th. This University-wide event is a great opportunity for areas across campus to fundraise. The best way to raise support for your organization is to apply for a spot among featured student groups on 1842 Day! Featured groups receive a campaign page and dedicated URL to share their story and encourage the Villanova community to support their organization. Donations made through an organization’s campaign will directly support the group. 1842 Day also helps student groups gain valuable exposure to thousands of Villanova alumni, parents, and friends. Last year, Villanova raised more than $11.7 million through the support of 10,055 donors!
