How much should one ideally donate to their alma mater?


As an alumnus, you might be wondering, "How much should I ideally donate to my alma mater?" The answer is simple: give what feels most comfortable to you. Many of our Daffy members choose to donate annually, but the amount varies greatly. Some might not be able to write a hefty $10,000 check, but a $20 donation can still make a significant difference. Remember, there's no such thing as 'not giving enough.' Even a nominal amount can make a difference. If a greater percentage of alumni donated even a small amount, the collective impact could be substantial. Donating to your alma mater can also be a fun and rewarding experience. You can use your graduating year as your donation amount and use notes to show your school pride and inspire others to donate too. Daffy is a great platform for managing your donations. It allows you to track your giving, learn about other ways to stay involved, and even honor friends and family with your donations. So, if you're ready to start giving back to your alma mater, Daffy is here to help. Your contribution, no matter how small, can better the experience for the next generation of students. Cheers to the graduating class of 2022! For more information, visit our website at [Daffy](https://www.daffy.org/resources/why-3-daffy-members-donate-to-their-alma-mater/).
