Giving Tuesday 2017
November 28, 2017
WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, nonprofits, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
The movement began with New York’s 92nd Street Y and was joined by the United Nations Foundation, followed by influencers, corporations and nonprofits committed to spreading the word and their own #GivingTuesday initiatives. In its first year in 2012, more than 2500 partners from all 50 states propelled the movement forward by increasing charitable giving on #GivingTuesday.
Help us reach our 2017 goal of 150 donations so we can accept Board of Regents challenge gifts totaling $30,000! Donations can be pledged to The Texas Lutheran Fund, TLU’s annual fund that supports scholarships, financial aid, institutional needs and maintenance, academic support, technology and student life, among other programs; the Annual Scholarship Fund; or designated for the program of the donor’s choice. Donations toward other university funds, such as the Bulldog Athletic Fund or Endowed Scholarship Funds, will also be accepted.
Any gift made through the online giving system, in person, by phone or mail on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 will count toward the TLU #GivingTuesday goal.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
