Giving Tuesday: Pick a Day. Any Day.
Giving Tuesday is TODAY, November 29, and Keene State College is celebrating! This year the goal is to secure 365 donations in just 24 hours – that’s one donor for each day of the year. If we are successful, this will be the largest day of fundraising in Keene State College history. As an added incentive, in honor of all of you who make Keene State and the world a better place, we’ve created a 2017 calendar where donors who make a gift of $5 or more can tag a day on the 2017 calendar to celebrate. Choose a day that’s meaningful to you, like your birthday, your anniversary, or the day you and your classmates walked across the stage at commencement.
“We’re gearing up to make a huge splash today with donations large and small,” said Lindsay Taflas, associate director of annual giving. “We hope everyone will act on their commitment to Keene State College and make a donation that will help to make a difference in students’ lives.
Today’s donors may contribute to the KSC Fund or give to one of 500 designated funds. Your contribution can help students understand the world by studying abroad, help future teachers or nurses go on to make a difference in other people’s lives, or help undergraduates gain valuable experience through internships, field experience, and working with faculty on research projects.
We need you to act right now. Giving Tuesday is a national 24-hour event, so to be counted and to sponsor a day, please visit keene.edu/donateGT to donate. The sooner you donate, the sooner you can claim your day! Many deserving students can be helped with your donation combined with the other donations made today. Most students require financial support to attend Keene State; you can help offset that burden by making your first gift of the holiday season one that really matters.
Visit keene.edu/donateGT or call 603-358-2923 to make your gift now! Thank you – we so appreciate your generosity.
