COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Join us for the University of Maryland’s fifth annual Giving Day, its largest day of giving in support of scholarships, research, athletics and the arts. Staff, faculty and students will celebrate the 24-hour philanthropic challenge with a Giving Day party on campus featuring the marching band, Testudo and a custom ice cream from the Maryland Dairy.
