Giving Day

Dalton State’s first-ever Giving Day is an occasion for alumni, faculty & staff, students, and individuals and businesses in the community to come together in a strong show of support for the College and the good things going on here. Donors may give to one of these nine priority projects or to any campus area that means the most to them.  

Please consider making a gift on or before Giving Day – Tuesday, October 27 – so you and your gift will be counted in the overall results.

NOTE: Gifts to the School of Arts & Sciences Biopsychology Lab project will be matched by an anonymous donor if we meet the project goal of $5,000 on or before Giving Day on October 27.
