Giving Tuesday

Thanksgiving is for giving thanks, followed by lots of shopping and holiday deals... wouldn't it be great to have a day for giving back? Our goal is to encourage alumni and friends to give a little something extra, that above and beyond gift, in the spirit of philanthropy and giving back.

A national movement about giving back

In 2012, Giving Tuesday emerged as a way for donors to share their spirit of giving with causes that they care about. Sacramento State joined the national effort in 2013, raising more than $55,000 for scholarships and programs to benefit students. Make your year-end gift to your favorite Sac State program and be part of this movement.

An attitude of gratitude

Sac State students thank you for your support. They're getting in on Giving Tuesday through the Hornet Pride Challenge, a student-led effort to promote giving back to Sac State. This also includes raising money for our Student Emergency Grant Fund.

Give Now

 Giving Tuesday at Sacramento State is Dec. 2, 2014. 

Sacramento State has joined the Giving Tuesday national effort to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff to the holiday shopping season, the goal of Giving Tuesday is for the Sacramento State community to take collaborative action to improve their University by giving back to help create a better campus.

Taking place Dec. 2, 2014—the Tuesday after Thanksgiving—Giving Tuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national day dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping. Make a difference in your Hornet community by making a gift between noon on Dec. 1st and midnight Dec. 2nd.
