Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is Nov. 27!

When you choose to support Pacific University on Giving Tuesday, you create opportunities for students by funding scholarships, learning environments, and innovation at Pacific.

Giving Tuesday relies heavily on social media to spread the word and make a difference for nonprofit organizations around the world. In fact, Facebook and Paypal have teamed up to commit $7 million in matching funds for nonprofits who raise money through Facebook this year on Giving Tuesday. Help us make the most by making your Giving Tuesday gift on Nov. 27 (as early in the day as possible!) on Facebook.

Other ways you can help:

  • Invite your friends to support Pacific on Giving Tuesday too.
  • Tell the world how Pacific has made a difference in your life.
