Thanks to the generosity of alumni, friends, and supporters, Fayetteville State University (FSU) exceeded its goal during the “Day of Giving” on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Thus far, $146,235 was raised from 363 donors. The goal was $100,000.
Funds raised support the following:
- Scholarships for students
- Emergency fund for students
- The Annual Fund
“I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am with our ‘Day of Giving’ results,” said Dr. Harriet Davis, Interim Vice Chancellor for University Advancement. “The Bronco Nation, friends, and supporters really demonstrated their pride by helping us exceed our goal. I can’t thank them enough for their support. I also wish to acknowledge the University Advancement team and FSU faculty and staff who were instrumental in helping us garner needed funds for our students. Everyone came together to support this effort.”
Individuals who did not donate on December 1 can still contribute, said Jasmin Sessoms, Interim Director of Alumni Affairs. University Advancement will be accepting donations via checks if they are marked “Day of Giving.” Checks can be mailed to:

“I am in awe of the support that our alumni have shown for FSU during the campaign, Sessoms said. “Our second annual Day of Giving provided an outstanding platform to highlight the impact of private support and the importance of creating a culture of philanthropy at FSU. It is my hope that our alumni will continue to rally around their love for FSU and remain connected with the University by supporting its endeavors in a greater way in communities across the country.”
