The annual #Grateful4Graceland Day of Gratitude (formerly Day of Giving) was a huge success this year, even with the lack of in-person events as in years past. With a goal of $360,000, the generosity of Graceland alumni and friends raised $446,000 (including a $180,000 match) – $86,000 over the goal. Graceland thanks everyone who gave to The Graceland Fund to help students.

Messages of gratitude flooded social media, and special content played on Graceland’s accounts throughout the day, listed and linked below. The #Grateful4Graceland Day of Giving has provided activities and performances, along with games and competitions, on the Lamoni campus. However, this year, with the COVID-19 pandemic preventing gatherings, the Graceland community came together, provided videos, and showed up (online) to make the day special and the success it was.

We are #Grateful4Graceland, and we are grateful for YOU!
