Fairfield will host its fourth annual STAGiving Day and asks students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends to wear red, share stories, and make gifts in honor of a professor, classmate, coach, mentor, or program that impacted their lives.

STAGiving Day is a great day to celebrate Fairfield. The Stag family of students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends are invited to join the celebration and help support Fairfield during the fourth annual STAGiving Day on Tuesday, March 20.
Every donor makes a difference. When Stags participate on STAGiving Day, they are celebrating and strengthening Fairfield's legacy of excellence. On March 20, the Stag community is encouraged to share stories about their favorite Fairfield experiences and make a gift in honor of persons or programs that have made a profound impact on their lives.
“STAGiving Day was brought to life four years ago as a way to bring the entire Fairfield family — including students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends — together for one day to collectively celebrate Stag Country,” explained Wally Halas, vice president for University Advancement. “On STAGiving Day, our community’s voices, stories, and support will work in unison to propel Fairfield forward as the modern, Jesuit Catholic University and provide great opportunities for our students and faculty.”
Gifts of every size make a positive impact. Donations will directly support dynamic academic programs and talented faculty, enhance student access to outstanding educational and extracurricular activities, and provide financial assistance and opportunities for students. New this year, with a donation of $75 or more, supporters can receive an exclusive pair of Stag socks.
