Salve Regina partners with #GivingTuesday to encourage philanthropy
Everyone knows about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Now, Dec. 2 has been designated #GivingTuesday, and people nationwide are joining together in acts of giving as part of a new holiday tradition.
On #GivingTuesday, people everywhere – including retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals, families and more – will come together with one common purpose: to help others and incentivize ways to give more, give smarter and celebrate the great American spirit of contribution.
Salve Regina has joined this national celebration of generosity, and encourages members of the University community to make their annual gift on this day. Whether they support The SALVEfund, scholarships or a favorite Seahawk team, gifts impact the campus and the lives of students.
“We already have a day that acknowledges giving thanks, and we have two days to acknowledge deals and shopping, so this is a day to kick off the season of giving and encourage philanthropy,” said Alison Bognuda, annual giving officer, operations.
Salve Regina is encouraging alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends to consider giving back and supporting the University in celebration of #GivingTuesday. Make a gift online.
#GivingTuesday started after a group of friends, partners and philanthropy experts, led by the 92nd Street Y, came together to find ways to promote and celebrate the great American tradition of giving. Thought leaders in philanthropy, social media and grassroots organizing joined to explore what is working in modern philanthropy and how to expand these innovations throughout the philanthropic sector.
