Thank You, Golden Eagles!
Because of you, your shares on Facebook, your Tweets and your Instagrams, Northeastern Illinois University has seen yet another record-setting Giving Tuesday - a colossal $44,000 from 100 donors! That is double the amount raised last year on Giving Tuesday!
Golden Eagles everywhere showed their commitment to students, to programs, to scholarships ... to Northeastern. For that, we say thank you!
Next year's Giving Tuesday is Nov. 27 ... Let's get ready, Golden Eagles!
What is Giving Tuesday?
We have a day to give thanks, and we have two days to get deals. Now we have a day dedicated to giving back.
We as a society for many years only think of Black Friday or Cyber Monday after Thanksgiving, but now we can kick off the holiday season of giving back right away. That's the purpose of Giving Tuesday — the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
Over the past three years, #GivingTuesday has become a touchstone of Northeastern Illinois University's fundraising efforts and the impact of this one day of giving is felt year-round. Your gifts sustain scholarships and opportunities that cultivate the minds and hearts of our students.
