ExxonMobil presents "Homecoming 2020" for Southern University System Foundation's SU Give Day

The Southern University System will host its annual SU Give Day on Wednesday, Sept. 30. Community partner ExxonMobil is the presenting sponsor for the day of giving, which is also declared the university's official Homecoming event by System President Ray L. Belton. Traditionally an in-person event where hundreds of alumni and other supporters flock to campuses with gifts, this year's Give Day will take place on the Southern University Facebook page from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
 
The virtual event will feature panel discussions and presentations, and a socially distanced student/alumni staffed call center at the Valdry Center for Philanthropy, located on the Southern University Baton Rouge campus, 598 Harding Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA 70807. Supporters can make gifts for Give Day on by going to https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/SUGIVE
 
 
SU?Give Day is the final appeal for the Foundation’s Million Dollar March annual campaign, which seeks to encourage alumni and friends to join together and secure philanthropic contributions for the campuses and departments of the Southern University System — Southern University Baton Rouge, Southern University New Orleans, Southern University Shreveport, Southern University Law Center, and Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center. Recent years' campaigns have yielded more than $20M.
