Gifts Doubled on 2016 Giving Day

May 9, 2016

Cornell alumni and friends raised the bar on April 19, Cornell’s second annual Giving Day! New gifts to the Atkinson Center doubled this year. By the end of the day, we collected a total of more than $24,000 from 66 donors—unlocking an additional $7,500 in challenge money.

Gifts to ACSF’s annual fund support faculty and student research and other sustainability activities. Gifts to a special fund in honor of retiring director Frank DiSalvo seed real-world impact through research collaborations with external organizations, including Environmental Defense Fund, The Nature Conservancy, Smithsonian, and NYSEG’s parent company Avangrid.

Our warmest thanks to everyone who supported the Atkinson Center and Cornell on Giving Day. Your generosity helps us all work together to create smart energy choices, economic opportunity, and a flourishing, diverse environment.
