#GivingTuesday: How Will You Celebrate?


Fall semester is quickly coming to a close, and the generosity of the holiday season is upon us. As you celebrate with family and friends, we hope you will also choose to embrace the spirit of philanthropy by participating in #GivingTuesday on December 2.

This globally recognized day encourages generosity and giving back to causes that are meaningful to you, and we hope Kent State is on your list.

On #GivingTuesday you are invited to put your money where your heart is, and support your favorite scholarship, college, school or program at Kent State University. To make the day even more special, an anonymous donor will match - dollar for dollar - every gift that is made towards the College of Nursing and its scholarships, up to $10,000!

Another #GivingTuesday tradition is the #UnSeflie. This is just a simple picture of yourself, holding a sign saying which cause(s) you support. You can join the fun by posting your own pictures on social media using the hash-tags #KSUnSelfie and #UnSelfie.

How will you celebrate this global day of giving back? Take pride in your generosity, your #UnSelfies and your Kent State University. #GivingTuesday is a special day to show the world how much you love Kent State. Every gift matters and every dollar counts as we work together to provide Kent State students with a world-class education. Click here to give to Kent State, and put your money where your heart is!
