Help put the “giving” back into the giving season by participating in #GivingTuesdayatCWRU today (Nov. 28).
Everyone knows that 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.
For the sixth year, Case Western Reserve University will be participating 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 groups 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
Begun Center – Opioid Epidemic
Campus Composting Initiative
CAS – Emerging Scholars Program
Case Fund, in support of student groups and startups
