VWD21

Our fourth annual giving day, Viking Warrior Day 2021 is in the books! When we work together, we rise together, and this day wouldn’t have been a success without our Viking family. 

 VWD21 results are a true testament to Viking spirit and the strength of the Salem State family. Consider what we accomplished: in an extraordinary year, we managed to not only top last year’s results, but also reaffirm our commitment to each other in times of need.  

We are deeply moved by Joan M. Feeley's incredible $200,000 gift toward the Thomas M. Feeley '68 Unrestricted Fund in memory of her husband Thomas Feeley. Thomas, who passed away three months ago, harnessed every opportunity he had to encourage his fellow graduates to join him in supporting future generations of Salem State students. We are proud that his legacy can live on through an endowed fund in his name.

Thanks to you, our students will come back to a re-energized campus, ready to embark on new opportunities and do what Vikings do best: work together through challenges. 

 Viking family, our Day of Giving was all about support; today is a day of pride. 

 Go Vikings!
