New Mexico State University will hold its second-annual #Giving Tuesday event on Nov. 29 to raise funds for scholarships and programs across the entire NMSU system. Last year’s one-day Giving Tuesday event, part of the national giving event on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, added millions of dollars to scholarship funds at all NMSU campuses around the state.
Join the NMSU community on Nov. 29 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. at #GivingTuesday headquarters in Corbett Center Student Union’s Aggie Lounge or visit advancing.nmsu.edu/givingtuesday to make a gift on Nov. 29.
This year’s event features select fund-matching opportunities, chosen by donors to boost some of the scholarships and causes they support. For example, to encourage faculty and staff to contribute to a cause they care about, Chancellor Garrey Carruthers and his wife, Kathy, have pledged up to $1,000 to match any outright #GivingTuesday gift or Nov. 30 payroll deduction gift from a faculty or staff member throughout the NMSU system. Be sure to sign up for payroll deduction by Nov. 20 to make a Nov. 30 payroll gift.
Additionally, alumni who make their first contribution during #GivingTuesday 2016 will be matched by a generous Aggie donor, up to $250 per household.
