Philanthopy Week

Did you know? Donors make a difference!

Each fall, the University of Mount Union celebrates Philanthropy Week on campus. Hosted by The Mount Union Fund, Philanthropy Week celebrates the generosity of Mount Union donors, while building awareness and a culture of philanthropy on campus.

Please join us for a week of virtual-themed days and fun activities to celebrate the impact of our donors – including alumni, parents, employees, students, and friends – and to highlight the importance of “paying it forward” as part of the greater Mount Union community.

Join the conversation and follow along on Mount Union’s social media using #UMUGivesThanks.
