Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday at Hastings College

#GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving in communities around the world. At Hastings College, it means supporting student scholarships, faculty and student activities through gifts to the 1882 Fund.

#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving—and after the mega shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It's designed to celebrate giving and encourage giving to organizations that matter to you.

Hastings College is participating in #GivingTuesday (November 29)—and we've set a goal of 300 gifts of any amount to the 1882 Fund. Give here to support:

  • Student scholarships,
  • Faculty and
  • Student activities.

Bonus dollars
The Hastings College Board of Trustees has even issued a challenge goal: If we reach 300 gifts on #GivingTuesday, they will personally kick in an additional $25,000 to the College’s 1882 Fund! This is in addition to matching all gifts to the 1882 Fund dollar for dollar as part of the ongoing Board Challenge.

You can help!
After you give, please share on your own social media accounts some of Hastings College’s #GivingTuesday posts throughout the day. The more people are aware, the more likely we are to reach our goal.
