Giving Days Header-01

A designated giving day is an opportunity to engage those connected to your school or organization, invite them to participate in your mission, and celebrate what you've accomplished together. Whether you choose to join in the global movement of #GivingTuesday or have identified your own Giving Day, don't miss including a designated giving day as a staple in your Annual Fund program.

A Giving Day is designated giving day that is unique to your organization. Unlike #GivingTuesday which a universal day of giving and generosity, a Giving Day is  a chosen day that has meaning for your organization or a day that fits well with your development calendar.
