The inaugural Falcon Giving Day has come and gone but the donations will have a lasting effect on our students. The 24-hour online giving campaign was a huge success for UT Permian Basin!

More than 220 people donated to the campaign. 63 people are new donors who’ve never given to the University before! The total number of funds raised amounted to $197,772.17.

Falcon Giving Day was a lot of fun and very heartwarming  - particularly under the current circumstances,” said UTPB Annual Giving Coordinator, Danielle Davila.

Davila noted that $50,000 was given directly to the UTPB student emergency fund. Those dollars will help the growing number of students who are navigating life during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Very often these students only need a small amount to keep them on track. They might need help because their car broke down and they don’t have enough money to get it fixed, or it may be that they have trouble with food insecurity and they need some help to get regular access to food.”

As for the future of Falcon Giving Days, the University hopes to continue the tradition.

“One of our main goals is to simply share the amazing success stories we have at UTPB. This money allows our students, faculty, and staff to positively impact on the world,” added Davila.
