Save the date for Giving Day April 19, 2023
Panthers came together and smashed records in 2022. Over $500,000 was raised to build a brighter tomorrow for our students and our University. We’re counting on you to help us reach even higher on April 19, 2023!
We’re counting down the days to Giving Day 2023, but you can support these causes any day.
You Make a Difference
Together we can fund scholarships for students, support academics across every school, fund programming and school life opportunities, and support important causes.
Each donation to the Adelphi Fund directly impacts current students and prepares them to become leaders in their industries and communities. With the help of financial scholarships, inspiring faculty and hands-on learning experiences, Adelphi graduates are prepared and eager for what comes next.
Alice Brown Early Learning Center
The Alice Brown Early Learning Center (ELC) is known for providing outstanding education and care for preschool students. This Giving Day, please help us refurbish our outdoor play area. We would like to add playground equipment for climbing and swinging and create more gardening spaces for the children.
Each year Adelphi's NCAA Division II teams participate in Giving Day to raise funds for equipment, training, and competitions. This year, teams will once again compete against each other to ultimately earn an additional award to their total funds raised on the day, provided by the Panther Club.
Bridges to Adelphi
Bridges to Adelphi is a non-profit support program that offers comprehensive, individualized academic, social, and vocational support services that are designed to help neurodiverse students.
