Giving Day

Dalton State’s second annual Giving Day on October 21, 2021, surpassed our expectations with a total of $252,684 raised in support of 60 projects and funds across campus! We emphasize that ‘donors can give to one of our Giving Day projects or any area of the College they love most,’ and this year showed that they love a lot of different things about Dalton State. THANK YOU for the enthusiasm and support from so many alumni, faculty and staff, and friends in the community and around the nation. Every one of these gifts represents a donor’s belief that higher education can and does change lives, and we are honored so many donors believe Dalton State delivers on that promise.

Giving Day 2021 gift designations:

  • $141,068 to scholarships for financial need and academic merit
  • $22,392 for academic programs and related projects such as technology funds and the Turtle Assurance Colony
  • $85,233 for athletics
  • $3,991 for the general fund in support of the College’s areas of greatest need

Giving Day 2022 will be on October 20, but you are welcome to support Dalton State any day throughout the year. Questions? Call us at 706-272-4473 or email at
