SPOKANE, Wash. — On Tuesday, March 30, Gonzaga University will launch a 24-hour FUNdraising drive with gift-matching and challenges — all to support Gonzaga students and their families facing the particularly difficult challenges of the pandemic. Participate or learn more at

Every Zag matters and every gift makes a difference. Your Zags Give Day donation of any size will be counted toward unlocking these bonuses, made possible by the generosity of committed Zags like you:

  • Gifts from all 50 states will unlock $25,000
  • Gifts representing all of Gonzaga's Schools and Colleges will unlock $25,000
  • Gifts from or in honor of every grad year will unlock $25,000
  • For every 100 donors, an additional $10,000 will be unlocked

Also, every donation will be automatically matched dollar-for-dollar, so that your impact will be magnified beyond the original gift amount.

Each year, alumni, families, faculty and staff, friends, and fans of Gonzaga show up to donate on Zags Give Day. Gifts of any size make a big difference to everyone in the Gonzaga community. This year, Zags Give Day is exceptionally important as students, families, and the University are facing increasing financial challenges. Priority areas supported by Zags Give Day include the following unrestricted funds:

  • The Fund for Gonzaga (greatest need)
  • The Zag Scholarship Fund
  • Zag Athletic Giving

And as always, Zags Give Day 2021 promises to be a good time for everyone.

“Zags who give have an impact that goes beyond donations to make scholarships, resources, emergency aid, and services accessible for all students,” said Stephanie Rockwell, senior director of advancement operations. “When you give, you are showing up for the Zags of today and tomorrow with the statement, ‘Gonzaga matters; you matter.’”
