This year, DeSales University will be celebrating its second annual day of giving – Hearts on Fire.

Hey everyone. Hello from the Gambet Center here at DeSales University. I'm here with my class, The Introduction to the Devout Life, along with Father Ed, who is my co-professor. He's an Oblate of St.Francis de Sales.  

And I'd like to invite you to consider giving to our second annual Hearts on Fire campaign. It's an opportunity for you to show your love to DeSales University and hopefully take the time and consider in your own heart to share with everyone here and all of our students and future students, some of your own treasures. It's an opportunity to help us reach our 100,000 dollar goal this year and we know that we can get there with your support.

Your generous gifts can help us buy costumes for our Act 1 productions, new computers for the library, some of the best equipment for our labs.

You can help provide accommodations and programming for the Salesian leadership retreat, state of the art equipment for healthcare, master classes and guest choreographers.

You can help us buy new jerseys or a seasons worth of Gatorade, new cameras and lenses for TV Film.  

Your gifts can help bring nationally known Catholic speakers to campus.  Your generous gift allows us to stay up to date with state-of-the-art equipment. Your gifts can send us to conferences and other class trips.  

You can also give to The DeSales Fund, which helps provide immediate assistance of financial aid to students in need, and so much more.

Thank you very much for your generosity. Once you make your donation of five dollars or more, print out your I Gave poster and share what fund you donated to using #HeartsOnFireForDSU.  

My heart's on fire. Our hearts are on fire. My heart is on fire. My heart is on fire. Our hearts are on fire. My heart's on fire. My heart's on fire. Our hearts are on fire and my heart is on fire for DeSales University. 

This year, DeSales University will be celebrating its second annual day of giving – Hearts on Fire. Wednesday February 12, 2020 is our chance to deliver a love letter to the University, and show our true love and appreciation. Whether you are a Centaur or a Bulldog, we ask all alumni, students, parents, athletes, families, faculty and staff, both near and far, to celebrate this incredible day. Every gift, no matter what the size, will help impact and strengthen the future education of our DeSales University students.
