What is the Week of Giving?

Make a GiftThe Week of Giving is a week-long online giving initiative that asks all members of the Emmanuel family to make a gift in support of the College. Together, our goal is to raise $400,000 in honor of our iconic address, 400 The Fenway.

From February 1–5, 2021, each and every gift counts towards this special initiative. Regardless of how much you give, or how you choose to designate your gift, your support provides increased resources for our incredibly talented students and steadfast, dedicated faculty.

Please Note: Emmanuel College is experiencing delays with mail sent via the USPS. All gifts postmarked by February 5th and containing "Week of Giving" in the memo line will count towards Week of Giving when received. We thank you for your patience.

Be a Saint: Make a gift to Emmanuel College this Week of Giving!
