Join the #GivingTuesday Celebration on Campus this Week

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.

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

The Michigan Tech Annual Fund and the Student Philanthropy Council invite all to join them in celebrating #GivingTuesday this week (Nov. 29 – Dec. 3) by participating in the third annual Pennies for Change initiative on campus.

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 designated to the Michigan Tech Annual Fund scholarship initiative.

Last year 1,564 transactions brought in more than $700 for scholarship support. It adds up. Your change can help change a student’s life.
