Below you will find answers to many common questions about All in for Dominican.
What will my gift be used for?
Your gifts will provide immediate funding for ongoing programs and new initiatives for the University. As we build on the Dominican Experience, we’ll continue to increase the amount of personal support each student receives, including peer and alumni mentors, signature projects, and tools to create a digital portfolio of their work to show to potential employers.
What is All in for Dominican Giving Day?
On March 20, 2018, Dominican University of California will hold a 24-hour giving day which enables all Dominican supporters to make a gift in support of programs, scholarships, Athletics, or the designation of their choice. Our campaign begins at 12:01 am on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 and concludes at midnight.
Where does my gift go?
You can choose from one of the many listed funds in which to designate your gift. These include the Dominican Fund (supporting the University’s top priorities), scholarships, or Athletics. You’ll also be able to choose one of Dominican’s schools or other organizations. If you do not see the fund or organization listed on the Departments page, simply select “other” and write in your choice.
I prefer not to donate online. How can I still participate in All in for Dominican?
Please call us at Dominican’s Advancement Office at 415-257-1396 to process your gift over the phone. We also invite you to join us on campus from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 to drop off your donation and join in our All in for Dominican festivities in person. We'll be celebrating our students and hosting fun events such as a puppy kissing booth. Come show off your penguin pride!
What size gift is Dominican looking for?
Gifts of any size are welcome! Our goal for this day is to meet and hopefully exceed 500 individual gifts.
What are matching and challenge gifts?
Some of our donors have set up funds to match gifts from a particular source (like alumni) or to fund a specific project. We also will have several generous challenge gifts that will be unlocked if enough donors make gifts of any amount. Every gift counts!
If you would like to set up your own challenge gift, please contact Dominican’s Advancement Office at 415-257-1396.
