Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to help the University of Nebraska and Nebraska Medicine on Dec. 1
Giving Tuesday is an annual, global day of giving when you have the power to give back to organizations and communities that are meaningful to you.
Founded in 2012, #GivingTuesday inspires us to come together on a day to support the causes in which we believe.
This year, Giving Tuesday falls on Dec. 1, 2020, directly following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, days on which many begin their holiday shopping.
If you wish to support causes related to the University of Nebraska and Nebraska Medicine on this day, there are ways to make a difference with any gift. Here are suggestions for a rewarding giving option:
University of Nebraska at Kearney
The college-going experience isn’t always easy, especially for students who experience a family crisis or some other personal setback — due to the coronavirus pandemic or other issues. The Student Crisis Scholarship Fund enables UNK to assist students during their difficult times. Give now.
University of Nebraska‒Lincoln
The Husker Pantry can use your support this season, as nearly one in three students worry about not having enough food to eat. The coronavirus pandemic has only increased the need for the pantry. Give now.
University of Nebraska at Omaha
Food insecurity is evident on college campuses, and UNO is not an exception. The Maverick Food Pantry contributes to UNO’s culture of caring by providing resources to students in need and connecting them to long-term support. Its help is available to students attending UNO or the University of Nebraska Medical Center. With the added stress of the pandemic, students need this help more than ever. Give now.
University of Nebraska Medical Center
The UNMC Disaster and Relief Fund supports students and employees at the University of Nebraska Medical Center facing a sudden financial hardship. This, of course, now includes stressful conditions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. Give now.
The Nebraska Medicine Employee Emergency Assistance Fund enables the state’s top medical center to help current employees who face financial hardships resulting from an emergency or crisis. Again, because of the pandemic, the need for this available help is greater than ever. Give now.
