BGSU One Day has come to a close. Thank you so much to those who made a contribution! If you would still like to make a gift to support BGSU students please click this banner.
Give one, encourage others and inspire the Falcon Family!

Each year, the Bowling Green State University community comes together to celebrate BGSU One Day – the University’s dedicated day of giving. This 36-hour online fundraising effort has continued to inspire Falcons to give back to their favorite BGSU program, college or area of interest and empower life-changing opportunities for our students. This year, our goal is to encourage 2,800 Falcon alumni and friends to support BGSU students and programs! By making your gift today, you will be part of University history and will increase support for vital programs and scholarships that continue to move Falcons forward.


Looking for other ways to make an impact?
Post about BGSU One Day on social media and email your Falcon friends, family and networks. Share why you give to support current and future generations of Falcons or the impact BGSU has made on your life. Share your BGSU story with the hashtag #BGSUOneDay.


BGSU One Day has something for everyone. Every donor matters, and your participation helps us unlock generous additional support from other Falcons through challenge opportunities. A gift to Bridge to BG scholarships, for example, helps us reach the 80-donor goal to unlock a $20,000 gift from the BGSU Alumni Association.


Make sure to come back to the BGSU One Day page to see additional challenges that you can help unlock throughout this exciting event!


If you would like to make a gift to a fund not listed on the BGSU One Day website, you can do so here.
