THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN POLY GIVES!
On March 9, 2017, Cal Poly welcomed alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff and students to participate in the university's inaugural, campuswide Day of Giving, Poly Gives. A 30-hour giving campaign that kicked off at 6pm on March 8 (Cal Poly Founder's Day) and ran up to March 9 at 11:59 p.m., Poly Gives was part of a greater movement on campus to cultivate a spirit of philanthropy among current students, graduates and the Cal Poly community.
While alumni, parents and friends were encouraged to make a gift to "the Cal Poly they love," students were encouraged to show their Cal Poly spirit by writing personal thank you notes to donors and participating in social media contests throughout the day. Hundreds of students, faculty and staff attended the Poly Gives UU Hour Takeover in the University Union Plaza at 11 a.m., celebrating donors and showing their Cal Poly spirit.
