Giving Tuesday

Building on the tremendous success of last year’s initiative, Laurentian University held its second annual Giving Tuesday campaign and raised an official total of $74,437 on November 29th!

Giving Tuesday is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. On this day only, donations were doubled to make a bigger impact on Laurentian University and its students. Thanks to generous community members and businesses, the following designations received matching funds throughout the day:

  • Student Financial Need
  • Voyageur Athletics
  • Leaders of Tomorrow Fund: Model Parliament
  • Mongolian Expedition 2017
  • Women’s History Week Fund
  • Master in Science Communication
  • Centre for Research in Occupational Safety and Health (CROSH)
  • SGA Food Bank
  • Men’s Basketball

So many incredible supporters made this record-setting day possible.  We are so grateful to everyone who took part by sharing their stories, making personal gifts and keeping the momentum going! Take a look at the flurry of social media buzz generated by our internal and external communities.
