Help Stony Brook University Hold Doors Open on its Fifth Annual Giving Day

Holding a door open for someone is a simple gesture. But it can make all the difference. Perhaps it can make a difficult day a bit easier. Or provide the opportunity to briefly connect with someone new and express gratitude.

On Giving Day, Wednesday, March 29, the Stony Brook community will come together over 24 hours to open doors for Seawolves everywhere. Gifts will benefit students, faculty, academic programs and initiatives across campus.

“The acts of kindness and generosity that we see on Giving Day epitomize what it means to be a member of the Stony Brook University community,” said Justin Fincher, PhD, vice president of advancement and executive director of the Stony Brook Foundation. 

“Within 24 hours last year, our students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends helped one another in countless meaningful ways. I am looking forward to seeing the tremendous impact our community will have again this year.”

Nearly 3,000 Stony Brook University community members made a significant and lasting impact on more than 100 programs in 2022, opening doors for leading problem solvers, healthcare heroes, entrepreneurs and forward thinkers.

Follow along on Stony Brook’s Giving Day website, where all gifts will be tracked in real time.
