Giving Tuesday - November 27, 2018

Issued: Fri, 16 Nov 2018 15:37:00 GMT

Launched in the USA in 2012, Giving Tuesday falls directly after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

During this period of intense consumerism, we ask our alumni to help the University with one simple charitable act on the day: a donation towards Travel Scholarships.

In 2014, the University of Glasgow was one of the first universities in the United Kingdom to run a campaign for Giving Tuesday. Over the years, we have built on that success and have now raised over £50,000 to support students at Glasgow who choose to undertake an international experience.Giving 650

We hope to inspire our alumni in North America to support this year's campaign by providing the next generation of World Changers with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

If you would like to learn more about the campaign or how to support our Travel Scholarship Fund, please visit www.gla.ac.uk/givingtuesday Be sure to keep an eye out on our Alumni Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels to see where this year’s students have been to study abroad. You can even search for campaign’s very own gifs using #UofGgiving #UofG #GivingTuesday.
