During the holiday season we have a day for giving thanks, two days for shopping for deals, and now we have a day for giving back. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that encourages individuals, communities and organizations to come together to give back and make an impact. During this last #GivingTuesday the entire WesternU family came together to give like never before, making it our best #GivingTuesday to date. Thank you to everyone who gave and got involved!
WHAT IS #gIVINGTUESDAY?
WesternU’s #GivingTuesday is an annual fundraising event that takes place on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving to give you and the entire WesternU community – alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends – the chance to come together for one day and support WesternU by giving a little back.
Funds raised go towards supporting student scholarships, innovative academic endeavors, state-of-the-art computer/laboratory equipment, special library and departmental acquisitions, facilities improvements and special academic initiatives and projects, all of which are essential to the growth and development of WesternU as it continues to educate current and future healthcare professionals who impact their communities through humanistic and compassionate care.
A big thank you to everyone who got involved in the 2016 #GivingTuesday!
