Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that takes place on the Tuesday after Black Friday, and on November 30, 2021, the University of Lethbridge participated for the very first time.
Over the course of the day, donors chose to give back in several ways, buying breakfast for students, raising funds for the ULSU Food Bank and Little Library Food Pantries, and collecting non-perishable food items.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, we exceeded our fundraising goals for the day. Donors bought more than 1000 breakfasts for students, gave over $12,000 for the ULSU Food Bank and Little Library Food Pantries, and collected food items in just 24 hours.
Thank you to the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta for their generous matching of gifts and thank you to all who made the day’s success possible.
