More than 2,500 donors from Hamden to Tokyo came together to contribute more than $262,000 to support important initiatives by Quinnipiac students and faculty as part of the university’s inaugural Bobcats Unite Giving Days.

“The success of our first-ever Bobcats Unite Giving Days is a testament to the Bobcat spirit and pride of our QU community,” said Andy Bernstein ’97, director of annual giving. “It demonstrates what we, as a community, can achieve when we join together as one.”

Donors represented 43 states and 19 countries in this year’s initiative.

“We’re grateful for the outpouring of philanthropic support from our QU community,” said Vice President for Development and Alumni Affairs Todd Sloan. “It’s inspiring to see so many people come together to help ensure that we have the necessary resources needed to provide an exceptional student experience.”

The annual Bobcat Challenge was included in this year’s Bobcats Unite Giving Days.

The university’s 21 Division I athletic teams competed to raise the most money to support their student-athletes and coaches. Men’s soccer and ice hockey, and women’s ice hockey and soccer scored the most points. Each team will receive additional funding for their programs.
