St. Bonaventure online campaign sets donation record

OLEAN – St. Bonaventure University set records for online donations during its first-ever Giving Day on April 21, Clarence Picard, director of annual giving, reports.

Giving Day registered 496 online gifts worth more than $138,000 during the 24-hour campaign, more than eight times the number of gifts and more than twice the dollar amount of the previous records set in December 2013, Picard says.

In all, St. Bonaventure received 608 contributions, with 61 first-time donors, 105 young alumni donations and 34 new members to the $1,000-plus Devereux Giving Societies. Gifts came from alumni in 34 states and three nations, Picard notes.
