Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27 provides an opportunity to help
Posted: Mon, Nov 12, 2018
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving when individuals have the power to give back to organizations and communities and that are meaningful to them.
#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 with a goal of inspiring people to support the causes they believe in.
This year, Giving Tuesday is on Nov. 27, 2018, directly following Black Friday and Cyber Monday – days when many American’s begin their holiday shopping.
Please consider using Giving Tuesday as a day to pause and to support the area of the University of Nebraska and its affiliates that means the most to you. Please consider joining us in advancing our university this holiday season while inspiring others to do the same.

“Together, we are changing the lives of students, we’re continuing to expand our research, and we’re continuing to recruit and retain the most talented faculty and staff,” said Hank Bounds, president of the University of Nebraska. “We’re building facilities where the very best in teaching, learning and patient care can take place. Because of you, the University of Nebraska is strong and growing.”
At the University of Nebraska Foundation, our mission is to grow relationships and resources that enable the University of Nebraska to change lives and save lives. We celebrate generosity and philanthropic activity on Giving Tuesday and throughout the year.
