What is #Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is a global movement that inspires people around the world to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and contribute in countless ways to the causes they believe in.

#GivingTuesday first started in the NYC 92nd Street YMCA in 2012 and falls closer in line with the holiday theme of giving back and giving thanks compared to its consumption-centric counterparts.
For its third year, the NMSU Foundation will localize #GivingTuesday to the NMSU system and its students, rallying community support on campus and online.

Ready to join the movement?

The entire community is invited to celebrate #GivingTuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 28, at NMSU’s Giving Tuesday headquarters in Corbett Center Student Union’s Aggie Lounge on the Las Cruces campus. Local radio stations will be broadcasting live with free giveaways, and fun activities and snacks will be available all day along with free parking in designated areas between Corbett Center and Milton Hall.

If you can’t join the fun in person, your support can be given online, all day on November 28 by visiting support.nmsu.edu.

The best part?

Many challenges for different Aggie supporters contain select fund-matching opportunities! For example, the first $125,000 in gifts made online or in person on #GivingTuesday at the on-campus headquarters will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500 per household.

Or, all alumni who make their first-ever charitable contribution to any department, program or scholarship in the NMSU system on #GivingTuesday will be matched dollar-for-dollar by NMSU Chancellor Garrey Carruthers and his wife, Kathy, up to $10,000.

So, what’s my challenge?

Use the navigation on the right-hand side of this page (or at the bottom for mobile users) to find the challenge made just for you! Your support on #GivingTuesday—big or small—CAN and WILL make a difference by joining in on the collective giving power of Aggie supporters worldwide!
