Gratitude Day

We are Grateful

Hosted annually by the Office of Donor Relations, Gratitude Day is a special event that celebrates the far-reaching impact of donor generosity on the University of Richmond.

We invite the Spider community to come together and share the things for which we’re grateful, write messages to those deserving of our thanks, and reflect on all the ways we are supported at the University.

Thanks for celebrating Gratitude Day!

We all have something — or someone — that gives us a reason to be grateful at Richmond. Whether it's for the thousands of donors who give back every year, a scholarship, the staff, faculty, and volunteers who help create an amazing student experience, or a mentor that's helped guide us, this is an opportunity to say "thanks."

Our fourth annual celebration took place on campus Nov. 9, 2023. More than 600 members of the Spider community gathered at the University Forum to enjoy cool giveaways, help build our "web of gratitude,” write personal thank you notes to donors, snack on free coffee and treats, and more. 

We also had Spiders around the world share what they're grateful for using the form here. We encourage you to use this form throughout the year to express your gratitude. 

We look forward to celebrating with you again in 2024!
