Hail State Giving Days tops expectations

Every spring, the Mississippi State University family anticipates Hail State Giving Days, the online philanthropy event with a goal of 1,000 donors. The 2018 event coincided with the observance of MSU’s official 140th birthday on Feb. 28 and extended through March 1. During the event, 1,032 donors from 31 different states honored the university with a special birthday gift. As a result, more than $710,000 in gifts for areas across MSU became part of the ongoing Infinite Impact campaign.
