I Love the Hill Day

I Love The Hill Day is a one-day effort to inspire our alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff to give back to McDaniel College.

Our goal is simple - to see 250 (or more!) donors come together in just one day to support areas of greatest need at McDaniel. Your gift can go even farther with special fundraising challenges and matches throughout the day. And if we reach our goal of 250 donors by midnight, we can unlock an additional $15,000 of support from members of our Board of Trustees! It's I Love the Hill Day...Join me in celebrating!


One Day. 250 Donors. Immeasurable Impact. #ILTHDay
