Ole Miss Giving Day is Right Around the Corner!

The University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy “phamily” will soon come together in a show of support for the school and its programs during Giving Day 2022. Last year, the School of Pharmacy raised more than $47,000 from 45 donors during the event. We’d like to beat that total in 2022, and we can get there with your help.

By making a donation on Giving Day, you will be investing in the future pharmacists and researchers who will improve the lives in their communities. Your donation will bolster scholarships such as the “Francisco ‘Frank’ Soldevila Pharmacy Scholarship Endowment,” support a cutting-edge curriculum focused on innovative training and help to make investments in the school’s facilities.

One way to help make Giving Day 2022 a big success? Become a Giving Day Influencer!

Influencers are members of the Ole Miss community who lend enthusiastic support to Giving Day. By becoming a Giving Day Influencer, you’ll be able to drive support from your personal networks to the school and programs that are most important to you. This is also a great way to boost your resume.

This program is open to alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the school. For more information on how to become an Influencer, visit the Giving Day 2022 website.
