Invest in Our Future Leaders

The SNU Big Giving Day is a one-day fundraising event on Thursday, March 26, 2020.

For 24 hours, alumni, students, faculty, staff, families, Trustees, and friends have the opportunity to come together and make a powerful, joint impact on the future of Sierra Nevada University.

The goal is to engage our community to advance the mission of the university by raising critical funding. Help us ensure that we continue to build upon our foundations to provide big opportunities for our students.

All gifts—big and small, online and in-person—support financial aid, research opportunities, artistic exploration, championship athletics, dedicated faculty and talented students. Giving Day is one of the most important days of the year for the SNU Fund. Your participation makes a huge difference.

Big Giving Day Challenges
  • Trustee and Founding President Ben Solomon will generously match all Alumni gifts, up to $5,000.
  • For every Giving Day gift made, Trustee Jen Hutter will donate $100 up to $5,000.
Make a Gift, Give a Cookie, Get a T-Shirt:
  • Make a gift in honor of a member of the SNU community (a faculty member, staff member or student) and send that person a delicious cookie.
