Giving Tuesday and You

Your thoughtful gift on or before November 28 can make all the difference for students.

Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday … there’s a theme of consumption here. All well and good — it’s a major component of the U.S. economy, after all — but what happens after?

For the first time, UW Tacoma is participating in Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that marks the start of the “charitable season,” when many think about philanthropy and end-of-year giving.

Below, we present stories of three students who have benefited from scholarships funded by generous donors. It doesn’t take much to make a big difference: sometimes just a few extra dollars is what keeps a student from dropping out, sticking with it through to graduation.

Your thoughtful gift on or before November 28, 2017 can help students achieve their academic goals.
