For us at Barry, it is the chance for our alumni, friends, parents, faculty and staff to come together and make a difference for Barry, our students and the communities we serve. This year you can make your gift even before the big day!
Support Barry University! What is Give Miami Day? Give Miami Day is one the nation’s biggest 24-hour online giving events.
All gifts made between Monday, November 15th at 12:00 a.m. and Thursday, November 18th at 11:59 p.m. EST will count toward Barry’s total raised on Give Miami Day.
What Makes My Gift Special on Give Miami Day?
On November 18th your gift will have an even bigger impact than usual. The Miami Foundation, who is hosting Give Miami Day for the 10th year, will match a percentage of gifts made to Barry on Give Miami Day. This means the more money we can raise from our Barry community, the more there will be for Barry students!
Will My Company Match My Give Miami Day Contribution?
Many companies and organizations encourage charitable contributions through their matching-gift programs. To find out if your company will match your gift to Barry, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Corporate matches will not be counted in the Give Miami Day total.
Where Does My Gift Go?
One hundred percent of your gift goes the Barry Fund or another area of your choice within the University. The Barry Fund provides critical help to Barry. Annually, more than half of Barry students report a shortfall between $2,500 and $5,000. These might seem like small amounts but for our students, who come from homes where family income is less than $50,000, any amount can make the difference between staying at Barry and having to drop out of college. Or, worse, they leave with a mountain of student debt that makes the life they had dreamed of seem impossible. With your help, we can eliminate cost as a barrier and give students the tools they need to move successfully through college and thrive in life after graduation.
