On Feb. 11, we celebrated our fifth annual Gonzaga Day, a day for Zag Nation to celebrate Gonzaga and its impact on our lives and communities, as well as to cheer on both the women’s and men’s basketball teams to victory against Saint Mary’s. More than 2,000 Gonzaga alumni gathered at 30 events.
For the first time, this year’s Gonzaga Day included a 72-hour Gonzaga Day Giving Challenge. For three days, Zags from 39 states and Canada stepped up to support scholarships. Zags raised more $250,000 (including matching funds) – the most in school history for a giving challenge. These dollars will result in more than 100 scholarships for students, now and in the future.

2) Francis Mana-ay (’17) posted on Instagram: “Without Gonzaga, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to discover and cultivate my passions. I wouldn’t be here without scholarships, so thank you to those who donated, for giving me some of the best experiences of my life.”
