We organized our first-ever Giving Day in 2018. It was a great success. We had every intention of organizing a second – and even more successful – Giving Day in 2019 but the political unrest in the country and the deteriorating economic situation, which has since gotten much worse, made that impossible.
In 2020, we celebrated Thanks-for-Giving Day – an occasion for us to thank our worldwide community of alumni and friends who rallied in support of Lebanon and our university in the aftermath of the devastating explosion in the Beirut port on August 4, 2020.
Despite the continuing challenges and the global pandemic, we celebrated Giving Day 2021 lighting up the world map with donations from 42 countries.
