The Alumni Association and Lakehead University invites you to join them once again for Giving Tuesday. With your help, the Nov. 27 event could be even bigger than last year.

Giving Tuesday is a relatively new Canadian movement for giving. Seen as the opening day of the giving season, it’s when charities, companies and individuals join together to share their commitment, rally for their favourite causes and think about others.

The Lakehead University Alumni Association has once again agreed to match donations up to the first $25,000 in new gifts received toward student financial aid. This is an exceptional opportunity to double the impact of everyone’s gift. Since 2016, more than $99,000 has been raised through Lakehead’s Giving Tuesday efforts.

By donating to Lakehead on Giving Tuesday, you will help fund scholarships and bursaries, enhance the student experience and support student athletes.

The Giving Tuesday portal found at donate.lakeheadu.ca opens at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 27 and closes at midnight.

You can also take a selfie or pose for a photo and post it to your social media page using the hashtag #GivingTuesday and #lakeheadu. The Annual Fund and Alumni Engagement office will share your posts on their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages.
