Can you believe there’s less than two months until Giving Tuesday? WealthEngine’s clients in the US and UK are anticipating the increase in donations during this year’s #GivingTuesday.

From California to Glasgow, our clients saw great success as a result of last year’s #GivingTuesday campaigns - we hope their campaigns will provide inspiration for your own #GivingTuesday initiative.

Last year University of Glasgow had ambitious plans to fund 10 travel scholarships. Not only did they meet this goal, they were able to fund 20.  

This year? They plan to build on this momentum.

“We are asking our alumni in North America to help us raise enough to establish 10 brand new Travel Scholarships. This support will enable our students to take up life-changing, international study abroad opportunities. We will also be asking our alumni to participate in #GivingTuesday by getting active on our social media outlets, sending us their own study abroad stories and photos for a chance to win some UofG merchandise and other great prizes! Just like our donors, we’re looking to give back to those who have helped shape our university.”

- Caroline Gould, International Development Coordinator, University of Glasgow and WealthEngine customer

If you’re like our performing arts clients, Opera San Jose and the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra, you’ll be looking to your patrons to provide support on #GivingTuesday. Both organizations have plans to raise awareness and inspire patrons on December 1 to align with their mission and commitment to their communities.

In southwest Florida, Lee Memorial Foundation has developed fun tactics and opportunities for their healthcare community to get involved during this year’s #GivingTuesday:

  • Donate a portion of your store’s sales on December 1st
  • Match donations made by employees or friends
  • Host their own fundraiser
  • Share across social media

The Office of Annual Giving at Spelman College is inviting their donors to “Get out the Give” for scholarships on #GivingTuesday.
