The Office of Advancement is proud to announce our Giving Tuesday Competition taking place on Tuesday, December 3. The competition is the College’s way of participating in Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season designed to encourage charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. Last year, organizations that promoted #GivingTuesday out-performed those that did not—by 170%.
On Giving Tuesday, nine student groups and College departments will compete for votes in our online giving competition. Projects earn votes through online gifts made that day to the College’s Annual Fund. After making a gift, donors can assign their votes to the project of their choosing. The project with the most votes will win $5,000 to see their proposal through to fruition.
