Giving Day 2020
Once a year, Giving Day gives the Endicott community a chance to come together to support student resources, scholarships, athletics, and more.

Giving Day Progress

Donate Now


The College’s Big Giving Day Challenge was made possible this year thanks to Trustee and parent Joanna Schulman who generously donated $25 for every gift made, totaling $55,000. Backed by other tremendous supporters, eight other Giving Day Challenges occurred throughout the day—allowing donors who participated the chance to unlock an additional $43,000 in matching funds for the College and significantly increase the impact of their gift. These challenges—all of which the College proudly met—included the following.
