One Day for UK

Why give to the University of Kentucky? 

Opportunities are why. Our students are why. Our community is why. Our future is why. 

For 24 hours on April 21, 2021, the UK community will celebrate the university’s giving day, One Day for UK, and support their favorite college, program or cause. On that day, ask yourself, “Why should I give to the University of Kentucky?” 
Give to empower the next generation of leaders. 
Give to improve lives in Kentucky and beyond. 
Give to address the problems that challenge us. 
Give to bring hope to those in need and in pain. 

On One Day for UK, you have the power to do even more for the place that made you who you are. Because Kentucky can change the world. That’s why.
