The UNM Foundation will participate in the global event, #GivingTuesday, on Dec. 1, 2015. Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back.

#GivingTuesday is a day to come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. The UNM Foundation asks staff and students to share this date and include UNM on their list of recipients this giving season.

To help emphasize the UNM focus on this day, the UNM Foundation’s event is called #LobosGiveDay.

To encourage as many people as possible to participate, the UNM Foundation sent a “Save the Date” email to alumni and friends on Thursday, Nov. 19.

On Tuesday, Dec. 1, emails and UNM Foundation social media posts will encourage giving to UNM. The UNM Foundation encourages you to share and retweet these social media posts to encourage others to participate in #LobosGiveDay on #GivingTuesday.

Private support is vital to the University’s programs, scholarships, research and patient care. Every dollar the University receives has the potential for exponential growth and is greatly appreciated.
