oneJWU: 24 Hours of Giving

On March 18, the Johnson & Wales community will once again come together to support our students and advance the university's mission of providing an exceptional education that inspires professional success and lifelong personal and intellectual growth. oneJWU: 24 Hours of Giving is your opportunity to support the area of JWU you're most passionate about, and make an immediate impact on current Wildcats pursuing their dreams.

Last year, more than 900 alumni, parents, family members, faculty, staff and friends of the university combined to contribute more than $50,000 during a 24-hour period! This year, we're continuing the momentum with new donor challenges and new ways to support the areas of JWU that matter most to you. From scholarships to athletics; from cybersecurity defense to the future of food; from sustainable tourism to media production; whatever you're passionate about, you can support it through Johnson & Wales. 

The collective impact of our generosity is unlimited. We'll not only support today's students, we'll help prepare tomorrow's industry leaders. Your gift combined with hundreds of others will enhance the JWU experience and give students the resources to make real, substantive change in the world after graduation. 

Save the date, mark your calendar and spread the word: March 18, 2020 is our day to make a world of difference.
