ECSU Gears Up for #GivingTuesday
Are you ready for #GivingTuesday?
On Tuesday, Nov. 28, building on the momentum of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement to get people in the mood to give at the start of the giving season.
Since #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, people may choose to donate to an organization of their choice. Giving to ECSU is as easy as a computer mouse click.
The ECSU giving page is www.ecsu.edu/ecsugives. Once you go to the page, a box will give you numerous giving options, a variety of scholarships and university-related funds. You can designate your donation to any one of these funds.
When promoting your donation on your favorite social media site (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), you are asked to use #GivingTuesday in any of your posts in order for your participation to be counted amongst all of the global donations.
Here are a few #GivingTuesday facts:
- Since 2012 #GivingTuesday has helped nonprofits increase their capacity and empowered more than 45,000 organizations in over 98 countries.
- More than $177 million has been raised for charities in the United States.
- #GivingTuesday has engaged leading voices across the country such as Bill Gates, Ellen DeGeneres, and President Barack Obama.

The giving takes place through Dec. 30.
