#Grateful4Graceland Day of Giving March 26, 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we postponed #Grateful4Graceland until April 23.  

The financial impact of this global crisis on Graceland and our students' families will be significant. Current and future students and members of their families have lost jobs, which may impair their ability to return to campus or attend Graceland as a new student, and they are struggling to find ways to travel, gain access to technology and pay basic living expenses. In the true spirit of Graceland, our community has come together in support of each other and especially for our current students, but many of the needs currently outweigh the resources available to address them.

We are asking for your help NOW to give more to The Graceland Fund. Help us help students with emergency funds, and help us provide students the support they need to return to us in the fall.

Donations received between now and #Grateful4Graceland on April 23 will be matched dollar for dollar, including those already received. During this time, you can double the impact of your donations and contribute to the critical needs of the university and our students. Please consider giving more this year to help students and the school we love!

I planned to go to Graceland as a young child and my parents sent small amounts of money to Graceland through the years.  So when I got there any education was paid for.  I made many life long friends and a wonderful husband of 64 years.  “Spirit of Graceland, those thy paths have trod-found thee the spirit of the Living God”.  – Shirley Arnold '55 Smith

I am grateful that Graceland's caring community is an enduring source of education experiences, treasured memories, and honorable values for its past, present, and future members.  – Mary Jean Murdock '65 Jeanae
