Before Duquesne Day of Giving:

SUBJECT: Save The Date - Duquesne Day of Giving: Feb. 7

MESSAGE:

Dear [INSERT CONTACT'S NAME HERE],

Duquesne University is hosting a Duquesne Day of Giving on February 7, 2017. This is a special day where all Duquesne University alumni, faculty, staff and friends come together and support the University and its students by making a donation online.

There are many reasons why I want to give back to Duquesne, but here are two reasons why I want to do so on this day:

1. You can designate your gift. Donations can be unrestricted, providing the University with financial flexibility and stability to address areas of greatest need, or you may designate your gift to the Duquesne school, organization or sports team that means the most to you.

2. Donations at any amount will make a big difference. Even a gift of $10 will make an impact and improve Duquesne's donor participation rate, which in turn raises Duquesne's profile in national rankings.

I hope you will join me in donating on February 7, 2017. Visit www.duq.edu/dayofgiving for more information.

Thank you,
