Giving Day 2024 Platform Now Open - Support Adelphi Athletics Today!

Garden City, N.Y. – In honor of Adelphi’s founding year of 1896, the Adelphi University campus has announced its ‘1,869 Minutes to Give‘ campaign, beginning Wednesday, April 17 at 4:24 a.m. and ending Thursday, April 20 at noon. 

An annual effort for the athletic department since 2017, each program will call on its alumni, friends and families for support this year, looking to once again put forth a historic effort as we’ve done in each of the previous years. The department set a record for funds raised – $177,000 – in 2023, after seeing donations to each of its 23 programs on top of gifts to endowed scholarships, relating to athletics.

In 2024, each team is focused on the student-athlete experience for their respective programs, which spans a multitude of projects. For example, gifts to this year’s men’s lacrosse campaign will help support the purchase of a new set of chrome helmets for next season – a gift of $250 will “sponsor” a helmet for an athlete as the team looks to raise $20,000. 

Men’s basketball will unlock an anonymous gift of up to $12,500 with a dollar for dollar match – all funds that will go to support a team training/preseason trip. 

Each team page listed at the link above provides more information as to what the program is looking to do with gifts made on Giving Day. While the official date is April 17, the platform is now accepting gifts. 

In an effort to drum up excitement around supporting current and future Panthers, we welcome anyone to become an advocate by signing up and using the toolkit to share the #Give4Adelphi word through texts, emails and your own social posts. The department is also looking for former Panthers willing to support their teams with a matching gift or challenge on the day of the event.
