Lynn’s second annual day of giving is here

University aims to break 24-hour donor record Oct. 27

Lynn celebrates its annual 24-hour fundraiser.

Lynn University will host its second annual day of giving Oct. 27. The “One Lynn” campaign brings alumni, students and employees across the globe together for one day to raise money for immediate needs such as scholarships, facilities, arts and culture, and technology.

Lynn raised over $55,000 from 278 donors in its first year—the largest 24-hour fundraiser in university history. Donors participated from nearly all 50 states and six continents. The university wants to break that record this year. 

“We are so proud of the spirit and generosity that our Lynn family showed last year,” said Sherry Henry, associate director of annual giving. “From volunteers who worked through the night, to alumni all over the world, it was truly an effort by our entire community. We can’t wait to see what we can do again this year!”

Approximately 50 students and employees will run the event from the “Knights Station” in the university library. The event will have on-campus entertainment, including a Lynn Conservatory of Music performance that will be live streamed on Facebook, and virtual activities beginning at midnight. 

New this year, local alumni will come together to celebrate the day’s accomplishments at the Dubliner Irish Pub in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park. The happy hour will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The first 50 people to register will receive a complimentary drink.

A dedicated giving site will have live updates, including a donor map and list, donation tally, social media feed and news updates, throughout the day. Those interested in getting involved can learn more in the FAQ section.
