Nearly 750 donors helped Saint Louis University's 2024 Giving Day break previously set records, raising $615,138 in 24 hours, including more than $220,000 for SLU's greatest needs, $158,000 for the School of Law, nearly $50,000 for the College of Arts and Sciences and more than $31,000 for Billiken Athletics. If you missed SLU Giving Day, there are still plenty of ways to support University needs.

Become an Advocate

Advocates play a critical role in the success of SLU Giving Day and may receive prizes for their support. What's involved?

Students stand at table handing out information about being a Giving Day advocate.
Students provide information to the SLU community about being a SLU Giving Day advocate.
  • Prior to Giving Day, advocates post about SLU Giving Day two to three times on their personal social media accounts.
  • On SLU Giving Day, advocates encourage at least 10 friends and family members through email, text or direct message to give to SLU. They’ll also make one to three social media posts encouraging others to give.
  • After SLU Giving Day, advocates share or create original content to showcase SLU’s final Giving Day numbers and to thank all who participated.

If you would like to become an advocate for the next SLU Giving Day, contact SLU Assistant Director of Digital Philanthropy Danielle Christopher at for a toolkit of sample emails, texts and social media posts you can use to help us spread the word.
