Between April 3 and 4, 2,062 donors contributed to Flagler College's sixth annual Roar and Raise Giving Challenge, raising a record-breaking $1,557,589 in support of the College's people, programs, and places.

"Year after year, our Saints community sets the bar higher for what we can accomplish through Roar and Raise," said Kristy Myers, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. "Their devotion to the College's mission of academic excellence and personal enrichment is the backbone of Flagler's ability to deliver a truly transformative education."

Roar and Raise is Flagler College's biggest fundraising event of the year. First launched in 2019, the annual 48-hour giving challenge unites Saints worldwide behind advancing the College's student-centered educational mission.

Funds raised are invested into key areas of need under the Flagler Forward Campaign, the College's comprehensive plan to maintain the institution's prestige while elevating its student outreach, faculty support, programmatic offerings, and facilities preservation and innovation.

"Behind every student engagement activity, academic program, and funded scholarship, there is a loyal donor who has given their time and resources to bettering our campus community," Myers said. "That is what a Flagler education is all about."
