Winter 2019 McKendree Magazine

Giving Tuesday - November 27, 2018

McKendree University received $99,991.08 in charitable gifts during its fourth annual #GivingTuesday campaign on Nov. 27, 2018. Contributions to McKendree on this day benefitted the University’s Annual Fund, which supports, in part, student scholarships and financial aid, student services, and academic instruction.

Each year #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable giving season following the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Members of the McKendree community helped spread the word about #GivingTuesday by sharing why they gave back and using the hashtag #190ReasonsToGive as a nod to the University’s 190th anniversary.

Thank you to all who joined the #GivingTuesday movement! We are humbled by alumni, friends, parents, faculty, staff and students who came together to make a tremendous impact in such a short period of time. Your contribution makes a powerful statement and inspires others to give back to McKendree. Our collaborative efforts on #GivingTuesday each year grant countless opportunities for Bearcats of today and tomorrow.
