Celebrating Ripon College! #OneDayRally 2022 reaches new highs

Following the most successful fundraising year in Ripon College’s history, loyal supporters from around the world came through once again with record-breaking totals for the fifth annual #OneDayRally giving day, Wednesday, April 27. The online campaign garnered a spirited show of support to sustain the Ripon Fund, Red Hawks Club in athletics and Friends of the Arts; and ultimately to support current and future Ripon College students.

When #OneDayRally came to a close at midnight, after a 24-hour campaign, $1,414,881 was raised from a record total of 2,217 donors. That was an increase of 129 donors above the previous #OneDayRally record set in 2021.

There were thousands of posts and shares on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media.
