   1,452 total donors in a 24-hour period

   845 online gifts  

   598 faculty and staff donors

   403 first-time donors

   123 students made a gift – a huge increase from last year!

   41 challenges were issued to inspire others to give, including 21 from faculty & staff

   22 new gift agreements established

   Three exciting major gifts announced:

      $250,000 from Ammu and Rama Devasthali for D.W. Williams Hall Challenge

      $200,000 from Emera Gas Co. to Arrowhead Center

      $50,000 in an unexpected online gift from an accounting alumnus

The New Mexico State University system is enormously grateful to our many generous Aggie donors, from within our campus communities and around the globe.

One day DID make a difference! Thank you very much.
