Black Friday, Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday

Last year we raised $138,000. This year we are ready to give again! Join the #GivingTuesday Movement and become part of something special!

We are all in!

We have a day to give thanks, and two days to get deals, it's time for a day to give back. Eastern Michigan University has become an official partner of #GivingTuesday, a national movement that kicks off the giving season with a day dedicated to charitable giving.

#GivingTuesday is not a new giving platform, but a call to action to celebrate giving and to encourage more giving during the holiday season. In the spirit of celebrating our good fortune, strong community values, and educational excellence, EMU will harness the power of social media and the generosity of our alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and students. We will be counting all gifts made to EMU via web, phone, and mail on December 2nd as part of our #GivingTuesday campaign. Be a part of the second annual, single-day fundraising campaign and make your gift on December 2nd.

How will you make a difference?

Take the Pledge:

Capitalize on your social media voice and let the world know that you will be giving to EMU on December 2nd. Join the EMU #GivingTuesday event on Facebook to tell us you're taking the pledge to give back to EMU on December 2nd.
The power of #GivingTuesday comes from YOU! You are the most important tool to making this movement a reality! We need you, our alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students to spread the message and celebrate giving back to Eastern Michigan. That's 200,000 voices uniting as one for Eastern Michigan University.


Save the date and join us on December 2nd to make your gift to Eastern Michigan. We encourage gifts of ALL SIZES to any fund on campus that is the most meaningful to you.
