Bloomsburg University to celebrate GivingTuesday to support student scholarships
Bloomsburg, PA (11/23/2021) — This coming Tuesday, Nov. 30, the Bloomsburg University Foundation will celebrate its fourth GivingTuesday campaign. This year, BU and the BU Foundation are asking donors to join the millions around the world who will be participating in this global generosity movement by making a gift to support scholarships for BU students.
"During this season of giving thanks and giving back, we want to take this opportunity to encourage our donors to support BU's number one need - student scholarships," said BU Foundation Executive Director Jerome Dvorak. "By coming together and making a gift to the Bloom On Fund, we can make a difference in the lives of so many deserving students. That's what this day is all about."
All donor support to BU during GivingTuesday will directly help Bloomsburg students by increasing the amount of scholarship dollars available to students, including emergency scholarships, which help make unforeseen situations more manageable.
In 2020, the BU Foundation celebrated a 69% increase in donors who participated in GivingTuesday, which included a 210% increase in donors who joined the global movement by making their first gifts to support students.
This GivingTuesday, lead donors will be inspiring generosity through matching gifts. These challenges will run throughout the day to maximize the impact of all gifts that come in.
Please consider signing up on our site to create a personal plea and tell your friends and family about our campaign. Spreading the word gets our voices heard and the donations rolling in!
Support can also be extended over the phone at 855 GIVE-2-BU or by mail to Bloomsburg University Foundation, Greenly Center, 50 E. Main St., Bloomsburg, PA 17815. All gifts should be made payable to Bloomsburg University Foundation.
