Black Friday and Cyber Monday are days when shoppers take advantage of huge sales. #GivingTuesday, which follows those deal days, starts the charitable season with a day to highlight philanthropic causes that make a real difference.
The Case Western Reserve University community is encouraged to put the “giving” back into the giving season by participating in #GivingTuesdayatCWRU Dec. 3.
For the eighth year, CWRU will participate in the international movement by offering the university community the chance to support student groups and other causes affiliated with campus schools, departments and organizations. This year, even more student volunteers are participating, which means the CWRU community can have a greater impact both locally and beyond.
The university community can support the following student groups, organizations and causes:
- Advocates for Cleveland Health
- Autism Speaks U CWRU
- Chabad at CWRU
- CWRU EMS
- CWRU Habitat for Humanity
- Emerging Scholars Program
- Health Advocacy and Leadership Organization
- Laura Chisolm (LAW ’81) Social Justice Fellowship Fund
- Mandel School Study Abroad Scholarship
- Office of Multicultural Affairs Unity Scholarships
- Project Sunshine
- Research Institute for Children’s Health (RICH)
- School of Dental Medicine – Healthy Smiles Sealant Program
- Student-Run Health Clinic
- Undergraduate Diversity Collaborative Lending Library Project
- WISER – Women in Science and Engineering Roundtable
Last year, more than 700 alumni, faculty, friends, parents, staff and students participated in the campaign, raising more than $20,000.
Students also will be at tables in Tinkham Veale University Center Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to raise money for their causes.
