Giving Tuesday 2018



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 27, 2018, 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 2018 goal of 200 donations! 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 27, 2018 will count toward the TLU #GivingTuesday goal of 200.

For more information about making a gift to TLU on #GivingTuesday, visit or follow the campaign on Twitter @TXLutheranFund and the TLU Alumni Facebook page.

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.
