Make a gift at on Thursday, Feb. 12!

Charities participating in Giving Hearts Day 2015 have been encouraged to submit a jingle to promote the annual 24-hour online give-a-thon for non-profit organizations in western Minnesota and North Dakota. Mayville State’s jingle is among the top six submitted and is in the running for a $500 prize. You can hear the top six jingles at

Giving Hearts Day is hosted every year by the Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation to help participating charities dramatically increase fundraising success by creating awareness and a 24-hour window of participation that spurs donors to action.

Gifts made to the Mayville State University Foundation through the efforts of Giving Hearts Day on Thursday, Feb. 12 will support the new RN to BSN program at Mayville State University. This is an opportunity for donors to help make a difference in the need for nursing professionals in the local area, as well as the state of North Dakota and beyond.
