Coe Day of GivingKohawks around the world will unite for the first-ever Coe College Day of Giving, set for Thursday, April 16. The special day will be a celebration of all things Coe, and include the opportunity for alumni and friends to share their Kohawk pride and support the college financially.

The Coe Day of Giving will be primarily conducted through social media, with videos and guest appearances throughout the day. Alumni and friends are encouraged to share Coe pride and memories by posting photos or videos using the #KohawkDay hash tag. Thanks to the generous contributions from many challenge leaders, gifts made to the college on April 16 will be matched to multiply their impact.

One purpose of the Day of Giving is to recognize the contributions Coe College makes to the Cedar Rapids area and the region. There are more than 5,000 Coe alumni living in Eastern Iowa - most in the Creative Corridor. Many will be participating in the Day of Giving program with various celebrations planned.

"We invite everyone to show their love for Coe on April 16 during Coe’s Day of Giving," said Vice President for Advancement David Hayes. "By participating in this day of Kohawk spirit, fun and giving, alumni and friends of the college can share in Coe’s bright future."
