Seen as the "opening day of the giving season," Giving Tuesday is when charities, companies and individuals join together to share their commitment, rally for their favourite causes, and think about others.  

This year's goal is to raise $52,500 in support of student scholarships, bursaries and awards.  As in years past, donors will be able to double their gift, as donations will be matched 1:1, up to the first $25,000 received.  

Since 2016, more than $326,000 has been raised through Lakehead's Giving Tuesday efforts.

Alumni and friends all over the globe are encouraged to give what they can on Giving Tuesday.  You may visit the Giving Tuesday portal beginning at 12:01 a.m. on November 30th, until midnight.
