Bucknell's day of giving to support athletic programs just finished. At the 2 PM deadline, there were 2651 donors who gave over $915,000 to various Bison teams in just over 24 hours. Given the country's current problems, this was a great showing - easily exceeding last year's $530k and 2150 donors.

Although the official campaign "day" is over, anyone who wants to can still donate.

It was great to see so many people step up and support Bison athletics so generously.

Wow, to almost double giving over last year is incredible, even in “normal” times, let alone when there are so many areas of need in out there.

Agree. For some perspective, Holy Cross ended a similar one-day campaign for athletics 12 hours ago and had 1525 donors and $360,000. Bucknell's final tally was 2687 donors and $933,000. Of course no two situations are identical, but I think this gives some perspective into how well Bucknell did.
