BREAKING NEWS: We have met our fundraising goal of $50,000! Thank you to everyone who donated to 1Day4Donnelly, especially the Loretto Foundation for donating the Chiefs prize pack and their additional $10k gift to Donnelly.

If you donated at least $100 before 11:59 p.m. CST on March 6th, your name was entered into a drawing for two club-level tickets to a Kansas City Chiefs game and a gold-level parking pass (i.e., a $500 gift = 5 chances). The winner will be announced soon.


1Day4Donnelly is the annual giving day of Donnelly College in which students, staff, alumni and supporters come together to raise funds to support the mission and student scholarships. There are so many options to become "1" with your Donnelly family on 1Day. All are welcome to campus for a variety of fun events. Tune-in remotely or in-person to Monsignor Swetland's Q & A, celebrate Mass, give a gift and/or pray for Donnelly.
