Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to help the University of Nebraska and Nebraska Medicine on Nov. 30

Giving Tuesday has become a well-recognized addition to the popular holiday shopping days just after Thanksgiving, and this year it falls on Nov. 30.

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 in our institutions’ efforts to change lives and save lives.

Here are some suggestions for a rewarding giving option:

University of Nebraska at Kearney

Help provide the gift of academic opportunity to deserving UNK students who need financial support through scholarships with a contribution to the UNK Fund for Student Scholarships. These critical scholarships are awarded by the UNK Office of Financial Aid to students who are very grateful for this support.

University of Nebraska‒Lincoln

Get ready to team up this Giving Tuesday for Huskers Head to Toe as the community unites to impact the lives of students like never before. With a gift of $60 or more to this effort for the UNL Fund for Student Scholarships, you’ll receive a pair of Husker socks designed exclusively for this event. These scholarships are awarded by the UNL Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to students with academic promise and financial need.

University of Nebraska at Omaha

A gift to the UNO Fund for Student Scholarships helps students who may not otherwise be able to afford to attend UNO by supporting those with financial need and academic promise. These vital scholarships are awarded by the UNO Office of Financial Support and Scholarships and are greatly appreciated by Maverick students. Other options for supporting UNO students include a gift to the Maverick Food Pantry or the Student Hardship Fund.

University of Nebraska Medical Center

A gift to the UNMC Student Scholarship Fund supports students by providing scholarships which recognize students’ academic excellence and their financial need. These critical scholarships are awarded by the UNMC Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid and are greatly appreciated by our future generation of health care providers.

Many off-the-shelf toys are not easy for children with diverse abilities to use, and specialized therapy toys are highly expensive. The UNMC Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) is leading a campaign this Giving Tuesday to secure funds so it can adapt 50 toys for use by its patients during therapy.

 Nebraska Medicine

Nebraska Medicine is a leading health care network and the clinical partner of the University of Nebraska Medical Center. It’s committed to an outstanding patient experience, which includes critical basic needs for patients and their families while they’re guests at the medical center. It also means providing support for technology, education and activities that enhance every patient’s experience. Consider a gift to support the Nebraska Medicine Patient and Family Experience Fund to help ensure the unique needs of patients and their families are met.
