Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social medial and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-the-year giving.
#GivingTuesday will take place on Tuesday, December 1st. Please consider Sigma Pi, Alpha Chapter this year and make a tax-deductible gift to the James L. Hills Memorial Scholarship, the Ryan M. Donnoe Memorial Scholarship, or the Sigma Pi House Fund. Donate now by clicking here.
