All In for Arkansas returns Sept. 1-2.

All In for Arkansas returns Sept. 1-2 and promises to be the U of A's biggest online fundraising event of the year.

In 2019, the Razorback family on campus and around the world rallied together to raise more than $465,000 for 153 different funds — from scholarships and study abroad opportunities to academic departments and digitization projects.

All colleges and units are invited to participate in the 2021 event, which coincides with the university's year-long sesquicentennial celebration. The final deadline to complete a Giving Day Project Application is Wednesday, June 16. All new and returning groups desiring a fundraising page on the All In for Arkansas 2021 website are required to complete this registration as soon as possible.

Unsure if your group is already registered or if your project is a good fit for giving day? Review the information below or contact the Office of Annual Giving at giveback@uark.edu or (479) 575-2944.

What is giving day all about?

All In for Arkansas is a 1,871-minute online fundraiser that unites the Razorback family around the world and rallies support for academic programs and student-success initiatives across campus.

Can my group participate in giving day?

All giving day projects must support an official U of A department, program, project or scholarship fund. In addition to a required UA Foundation account, elements needed for a successful campaign include a compelling cause, motivated project leader(s) and built-in affinity groups.

If your project includes passionate alumni, scholarships honoring beloved faculty members, outreach programs with widespread appeal or board-driven fundraising projects, All In will be a great fit for you! RSOs, Greek chapters and other student groups are encouraged to participate by rallying support for a registered All In for Arkansas project with a similar mission or area of passion (i.e. Senior Walk, Student Emergency Funds, Study Abroad or a specific academic unit or scholarship fund).

Why should my group participate in giving day?

All In offers all kinds of benefits! Registered All In for Arkansas groups receive:

  • Opportunities to compete for giving day bonus bucks ($23,000 up for grabs in 2019).
  • Customizable fundraising page with real-time gift tracking.
  • Unique URL to drive donors directly to your page.
  • Ability to run a match or challenge for your group/fund.
  • Built-in promotion as part of the U of A's overall giving day marketing.
  • Tips and training sessions to maximize fundraising success.
