#GivingTuesday was 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. NASPA and the NASPA Foundation will participate in #GivingTuesday this year in celebrating NASPA’s 100th Anniversary.
Save the Date! #GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – December 3, 2019.
The work of student affairs professionals continues to transcend and impact the lives of countless students. Learn more through the stories of those who have volunteered with the Foundation, received scholarship funding to attend conferences or been recognized for the scholarly work to the field. Your donations matter and allow for the future growth of student affairs through today’s campus professionals. The support of 100 people donating just $10 each allows for a graduate student to attend the NASPA Annual Conference, with travel included.
Looking back at our past and embracing our future, we invite you to make a gift in honor of fellow student affairs friends, colleagues and mentors. Use the hashtag #SAHero, and let people know who inspired you and who you are honoring through your gift. On #GivingTuesday, pick a fund that supports a cause close to you and honor someone who impacted your career. Give $10 in thier honor and say thanks online using @NASPAGives and #SAHero.
With a goal of $10,000 in 2017, you raised $15,576 on #GivingTuesday in just 24 hours. Those gifts came back to the profession as scholarships, awards and grants, including our Innovation Grants Program! This year, the NASPA Foundation hopes to raise $15,000 in support of #GivingTuesday to provide future conference scholarships and grants for you to access. We cannot do this without your support!
Hear first-hand how your donations are making an impact for t he lives of college students on campus and today's full-time professionals.
