#GivingTuesday: Support UIndy, help needy

If you make it through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, don’t forget to express your gratitude and share a little warmth on #GivingTuesday.

Marking its fourth annual observance Dec. 1, #GivingTuesday is a global campaign fueled by social media that promotes personal philanthropy and end-of-year charitable giving.

Gifts to the University of Indianapolis support a range of programs and investments that benefit students, faculty and the broader community, including scholarships, research opportunities, interdisciplinary collaborations, athletics programs, facility upgrades and service projects.

This Tuesday, gifts made to UIndy will go even further than usual. For every $20 given, the donor will receive a pair of touchscreen-compatible UIndy gloves, as seen above, and the university will donate a pair of warm gloves to Wheeler Mission Ministries, a nonprofit organization that serves the homeless and needy of central Indiana. Also, as UIndy continues its $50 million Campaign for the University of Indianapolis, campaign chair Yvonne Shaheen has pledged to match every gift dollar for dollar up to $1 million during this fiscal year.
