Emory University held its first day of giving on February 8th-9th. The initiative, All In A Day: 24 Hours of Change raised over $500,000 for the University. Of that, the Laney Graduate School raised over $36,000 in individual gifts, as well as matched and unlocked funds through challenges. During this fundraising initiative the Laney Graduate School rolled out the creation of the General Diversity Gift Fund to increase support for diversity initiatives at Laney.
