    14 Reasons to Give to UW on Giving Day

    November 15, 2017

    What a difference a day makes! UW Giving Day is an annual tradition that, this year, occurs on Nov. 28. It coincides with Giving Tuesday, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, which is a global day of giving that follows Black Friday, when shoppers mob the stores, and Cyber Monday, which is a big day for online shopping. Those who wish to participate can go to the #UWGivingDay website ( on Nov. 28 to give online. On this site, donors can support any of UW’s colleges and units, or they can click over to UW’s regular online giving ( to support a particular program. If  you choose the UW Alumni Association, your donation goes directly to student scholarships. All gifts on that day are counted towards the Giving Day total.
