Thank you to everyone who came to our first-ever #Thanks4Giving Day on Tuesday, November 18th, the event kicked off on the Beach during the Student Dead Hour and continued into the evening in the Alumni Center. During the day, students wrote thank you post cards to donors, signed a jumbo-sized banner to show support, and took selfies of themselves giving back. They also made calls to supporters in the evening at the Alumni Center offices. This event is held in conjunction with “#GivingTuesday,” a national day of giving occurring at the start of the philanthropic “giving season” which traditionally follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with which UC Hastings is proud to be involved.
The purpose is to celebrate the impact that charitable giving has on our school by thanking our valued donors, for which many of Hastings’ academic offerings, student organizations, scholarships, on-campus groups, and programs are possible. It also served as the launch day of the 2014-2015 Student Giving Campaign where students give a donation to anything they care about ($20.15 is the suggested amount) and faculty, staff, alumni & friends can match those gifts to double the impact.
There's still time to give back!
