Pennies for Change Initiative

What is #GivingTuesday? We have a day for giving thanks (Thanksgiving). We have two for getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday). Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

Tomorrow, charities, families businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for a common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

On campus, the Michigan Tech Annual Fund and the Student Philanthropy Council, invite all to join them in celebrating #GivingTuesday this week by participating in their second annual Pennies for Change initiative.

Anyone making a purchase at any on-campus merchant location (Campus Store, MUB food court, Library Café, etc.) is asked to consider “rounding up” to the next dollar with the proceeds being designated to the Michigan Tech Annual Fund scholarship initiative.

Last year 672 transactions brought in more than $900 for scholarship support. Your change can help change a student’s life. For more information, contact Paula Nutini in the Annual Giving Office at pjnutini@mtu.edu.
