November 26 NASPA Policy Update by Diana Ali, NASPA Policy Analyst
NASPA and the NASPA Foundation are celebrating #GivingTuesday—and we invite you to join us. #GivingTuesday is a day founded by charities and philanthropists to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It’s a counter to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a chance to focus on people rather than things.
Help support the work of the NASPA Foundation this #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. This year’s #GivingTuesday falls on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
