WFIT will receive $5,000 if we can reach our goal: 50 donations of any amount Today!
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Today Tuesday, December 1, individuals, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Today is Florida Tech’s Day of Giving, in conjunction with the international effort known as Giving Tuesday. Introduced in the United States in 2012, Giving Tuesday, which follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is a day of philanthropy benefiting non-profit organizations. It has involved 30,000 partners in 68 countries.
The Day of Giving website at http://dayofgiving.fit.edu/ will count down to the kick-off and, on Dec. 1, keep a real-time tally with a live leaderboard. Links to social media will also be available. The goal will be to secure participation by obtaining gifts of all sizes from as many Florida Tech alumni as possible during this 24-hour time period.
Spearheaded by the deans of each of Florida Tech’s five colleges, participants will be able to help their favorite area of the university win prize money as they compete in university-wide challenges. In addition to the colleges, the university’s botanical garden, museums, Evans Library, weVENTURE, Continuing Education office and WFIT-FM 89.5 are participating.
