On Dec. 1, 2015, the University of Pikeville will join #GivingTuesday, a global initiative that connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

A contrast to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday began as a way to harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners — nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals — to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. The sentiment carries special meaning for University of Pikeville students, faculty and staff who logged more than 2,100 volunteer hours as part of a freshman studies service-learning project this fall.

UPIKE is proud to be a part of the #GivingTuesday effort, one that aligns with the institution’s founding mission, vision and values to serve the people of the mountains. Students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to join in this worldwide movement sharing giving stories on social media using #truebearsgive, #GivingTuesday, @upikebears and @GivingTues.

Please consider making a #GivingTuesday gift to support learning opportunities for UPIKE students or remember the university in your estate with one of the options below.
