Day of Giving 2023 was a major success!

Mission accomplished: We crushed our goals for Day of Giving 2023.

A total of 760 donors gave $180,825 before midnight on Day of Giving. This money will directly benefit and empower Bemidji State students. We are deeply moved by the great show of community from Beavers around the globe in supporting the BSU departments, programs and initiatives that mean the most to them.

Thank you so much for making this triumph possible.

Because of you, more students will earn scholarships. Fewer nursing and education students will worry about their exam fees. Aquatic biology research will continue in earnest, and music majors will benefit from upgrades. Students facing hardships -- particularly American Indian students -- will be provided for. And all of our athletic programs have a better chance at chasing their next championship.

Day of Giving proves that the world is full of passionate and benevolent Beavers like yourself, and we couldn't be more proud to call you our own.

A full recap of the day is coming soon. Until then, let's celebrate what we've accomplished for our students!
