Raise money for your Registered Student Organization during One Day for UNK!

On Oct. 6-7, 2021, the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the University of Nebraska Foundation will host an online giving event — One Day for UNK: 24 Hours of Loper Giving — for the very first time.

One Day for UNK offers Loper students a unique opportunity to raise funds that will go directly back to their Registered Student Organizations. We encourage you to utilize social media, as well as reach out to alumni, students, parents, friends, professors and anyone else you can recruit to support your group’s efforts.

All Registered Student Organizations who register will compete for bonus dollars for their organization:

  • $1,000 awarded to the RSO with the most donors by noon on Thursday, Oct. 7.
  • $1,000 awarded to the RSO with the most dollars raised by noon on Thursday, Oct. 7.
  • $500 awarded to one randomly selected RSO that registers to participate by Sept. 24, 2021.
  • $200 awarded to each RSO that receives gifts from 20 or more donors by noon on Thursday, Oct. 7.
