For the first time, the Western New Mexico University Foundation is participating in Giving Tuesday, an international day of spreading the wealth and sharing the love. From 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, November 27, people are invited to donate to the WNMU Foundation in support of university programs and student scholarships.
The WNMU Foundation’s Giving Tuesday event is themed Momentum for Today and Tomorrow in honor of the students who are attending the university today and leading the world into tomorrow.
This year alone, 330 different donors have made gifts to the WNMU Foundation, and the donation amounts range from $5 to $104,000. “Every contribution benefits WNMU students and increases the momentum for today and tomorrow for our university community,” WNMU Foundation Executive Director Jodi Edens-Crocker said. “Giving Tuesday is a way to participate and show support. Every single dollar makes an impact on WNMU students.”
Giving Tuesday contributions may be made online at foundation.wnmu.edu/giving-tuesday or in person at the WNMU Foundation office in Hunter Hall on campus between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. All the funds raised on Giving Tuesday will be designated unrestricted in the Transforming the Future fund unless otherwise noted.
