The Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) Foundation has set a university record for one-day giving, raising more than $87,000 in 24 hours.

WSSU Giving Tuesday, which was held on Dec. 4, smashed this year’s goal of $50,000. The one-day event also set a Giving Tuesday record for the number of individual donors, with 837 alumni, faculty, staff and friends donating.

Isaac Moore, director of alumni engagement, said he and others in University Advancement knew the day was going to be big when the live tally showed $25,000 by 11 a.m.
