ECSU is Ready for #GivingTuesday, Dec. 3
Are you ready for #GivingTuesday?
On Tuesday, Dec. 3, building on the momentum of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement to encourage people 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 Elizabeth City State University is as easy as a computer mouse click.
When you support ECSU on #GivingTuesday, you ensure students have access to a quality education delivered by a highly qualified and dedicated faculty. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for alumni, faculty, staff, parents, students and our community of friends to join forces to make a difference in the lives of students and to continue paving the path for academic excellence in the future.
Funds raised during the ECSU #GivingTuesday campaign directly support key areas like student scholarships, academic programs, athletics, faculty research, student programs, and much more.
The ECSU giving page is www.ecsu.edu/ecsugives. Once you go to the page, a box will give you numerous giving options including a variety of scholarships and university-related funds. You can designate your donation to any one of these funds or select the ECSU Fund and donations will be used where they are most needed.
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.
