givingtuesday“Giving Tuesday” is a recent movement supporting giving and volunteering which takes place each year after all the hype of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We think of it as the “opening day of the holiday giving season,” a day where we can rally together for favourite causes and think about others. Together, our small gifts of philanthropy can have a great impact on Augustana Campus.

This Augustana tradition began in 2014 continues on November 29th, 2016. Gifts in honour of this Giving Tuesday will be used to outfit each of the two main floor washrooms in the Forum Building with a baby change table – an urgent need requiring attention.

We’re thrilled to share that an anonymous donor has already provided a gift of $750 for this project – 50% of our fundraising goal! But, we need your help to get to the finish line! Please visit Bonnie or Bree in the Augustana Development Office today to make your Giving Tuesday donation – a gift of any size will make a BIG difference!

Giving Tuesday will take place from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm in the forum, near the middle fireplace on Tuesday, November 29th. This year, gifts of $5 or more will be entered to win amazing prizes! If possible, please plan to come early so your name will be included in each of the three draws: at 11:45 am, and 1:00 pm, with the grand prize draw at 2:00 pm.

If you can’t make it here, you can always give online to the Dean’s Innovation Fund and indicate GIVING TUESDAY at http://www.ualberta.ca/augustana/alumni-and-giving/giving

A heartfelt note of thanks to Ms. Marilyn Pike, the thoughtful Augustana donor who has again donated the generous prizes for our Giving Tuesday event!

We hope to see you there!
