Below you will find answers to many common questions about Ospreys Give.
What is OspreysGive?
Ospreys Give is Stockton's first day of giving- an inspiring online fundraising event to bring the entire Stockton community together to GIVE BACK, GET BACK, & MAKE AN IMPACT!
When is Ospreys Give?
Ospreys Give will take place on Sunday, February 18, 2018 starting at 3:00 p.m. EST through 11:49 p.m. EST on Monday February 19, 2018.
Who can participate?
Anyone and everyone who loves Stockton! Ospreys Give unites alumni, friends and parents all across the country with faculty, staff and students right here on campus in an epic outpouring of Stockton pride.
Are gifts tax-deductible?
Yes. Gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Once you make your gift, you will receive an email confirmation that your gift has been received.
Why should I participate in Ospreys Give?
Every gift makes Stockton a university of opportunity for students from all walks of life. Your support provides the ongoing resources that are crucial to its growth and success as a world-class institution. Donors touch lives every day with gifts that support academics, scholarship, and service to others. It takes the collective annual support of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff to make an institution like Stockton great.
What are Matching and Challenge Gifts?
Matching gifts help encourage greater participation and larger gifts to the university. They provide sense of urgency that frequently prompts action on the part of potential donors. These also provide donors the opportunity to double the impact of their contribution.
Please note that only gifts made on Ospreys Give will be eligible for the Match and Challenge opportunities. Please keep checking ospreysgive.stockton.edu to stay updated on the status of these matching challenges.
Is it possible to make a gift by mail or by phone?
Because Ospreys Give is a 1969 minute campaign, we strongly encourage you to make your gift online. This is the only way to assure your gift will qualify for matches and challenges taking place throughout the event. To give by phone, you may call 609-652-4658 from 3 p.m. - 8 p.m. EST Sunday, February 18, and from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. EST Monday, February 19. Making a gift by mail would still be a great way to support Stockton, but would not impact Ospreys Give totals.
How can I help spread the word?
You can spread the word on all social media just by tagging your posts with #ospreysgive. Please also talk about Stockton's Ospreys Give to your friends, colleagues and anyone you think may be interested in supporting Stockton.
