Members of the Rhodes community celebrated Rhodes Giving Day on April 10—raising  $270,033 and 1,340 gifts—a new record for Rhodes for number of gifts made in one day. Dozens of volunteers helped drive the challenge to success.

Community members from across the United States lent their support to the challenge, as well as donors from the United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, India, and Guatemala.

Alumni comprised the greatest percentage of donors, with the youngest classes making up eight percent of gifts. The Class of 1994 had the greatest number of donors with 65 gifts. Parents representing all four class years of students contributed, in addition to parents of graduates ranging from 2013-1999.

“Your investment in Rhodes supports our outstanding faculty and staff who work daily to challenge and inspire our students, provide opportunities, and transform lives,” said Rhodes President Jennifer Collins. “Thank you for your support, and for all you do for Rhodes.”
