Giving Tuesday: Success and Thanks

On behalf of our very grateful students, faculty, and staff, thank you for yet another record-breaking Giving Tuesday campaign.

While we are still calculating final numbers, we know that Tuesday's effort produced over 850 gifts, raising over $450,000 in donations and pledges for Regis!

In the coming weeks, the students, faculty, and staff will begin fulfilling their Giving Tuesday challenges—stay tuned for updates!

As we approach the season of Advent, let us allow this spirit of generosity to fill our hearts and continue to drive the Regis mission.

Below is a recap of our Giving Tuesday photographs and messages.
