Giving Blueday: November 29, 2016
One day. 24 hours. That’s 1,440 minutes to support what you love about the University of Michigan-Flint.
On November 29, UM-Flint is once again turning Giving Tuesday—the national movement to kick off the giving season—into Giving Blueday. You can help transform lives, shape the world, and make great things happen.
On this special day, from midnight through 11:59 p.m. EST, you can be a victor for Michigan by making donations to the scholarships, research, travel, and book and programmatic funds that help our students be successful in the classroom and beyond. Gifts of every size will make a difference, and your gift could go even further by attracting additional funds through matching gifts and challenges you can participate in throughout the day.
Be sure to connect with UM-Flint on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and join us for interactive social media content, challenges, and real-time updates. And for more information on Giving Blueday at UM-Flint, read the news article here.
Attention, UM-Flint students!
Here is an opportunity to double your blue on #GivingBlueday! A $5,000 match will be made available every hour between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. for UM students only. Gifts will be matched each hour in the order they are received, until the $5,000 limit is reached. To increase the likelihood of being matched, we recommend giving right at the beginning of the hour. Do not miss this opportunity to double your gift to the UM-Flint initiatives that mean the most to you!
