Manchester Giving Day

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson —

A mighty forest can start from the humble beginnings of an acorn. Every year at Manchester first year students are given an acorn as a representation of the potential each of them holds. Upon graduation, each student receives an oak tree to plant in recognition of their personal and academic growth. This year's theme celebrates our tradition and embraces with hope the success stories of future MU graduates.

Be part of the Manchester Giving Day on April 17, and support our students with a gift. Join faculty, staff, students and alumni and friends all around the world who help make Manchester education possible.
