#GivingTuesday - Dec. 3

12/2/2013 (Archived)

#GivingTuesdayDecember 3—the day after Cyber Monday and just days after Black Friday, is #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is “a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations” (www.community.givingtuesday.org). In its inaugural year in 2012, more than $10 million in online donations were received for the participating 2,500 partner organizations.

This year Palmer is taking part in #GivingTuesday to encourage gifts to the Palmer Fund that will provide scholarships for our students. While you are welcome to contribute at any time, we hope you will also consider donating on #GivingTuesday and making a difference to the online movement.

Visit www.palmer.edu/donate or call (800) 722-2586, Opt. 3, Opt. 4. Make sure you tweet about it with #GivingTuesday and @palmercollege.
