On Tuesday, November 29, Pilots near and far will come together to celebrate Giving Tuesday for the first time at UP, according to Amy Eaton, development. For this day, our goal will be to raise 100 new gifts within a 24-hour period. When we reach the 100 gifts, a $10,000 gift from a generous parent will be unlocked to support student scholarships at UP.
The Senior Class Gift Committee will be joining efforts with University relations to raise awareness and engage students in this great philanthropic event. Students will set up a giving station at the Pilot House, with photo opportunities with Wally Pilot. Marketing and communications will launch a fun social media campaign, alumni relations will engage their chapters, and development will be reaching out to all channels to inspire support for UP students.
Giving Tuesday is a fantastic day for faculty and staff to make their gifts too. To participate, simply go online to this link. If you are already signed up for payroll deduction (watch your inbox soon for next year’s renewal) you can still participate by following UP’s social media to “like” and “share” fun Giving Tuesday content with your friends. Use the hashtags #UPGives and #GivingTuesday and share why you support giving to UP.
The Office of Development is very excited to kick off the season of giving tomorrow. By joining Giving Tuesday, UP will officially be a part of a global movement and celebration of generosity.
Make an impact. Spread the word. Give from the heart.
